Problem when placing many files in a directory

I am experiencing a strange problem when saving more than 75 files in one
directory on a Unix-box via Samba. Up to 75 files everything is working
fine, but when saving file #76 the extension of one of the files is
truncated to 1 character. 


Let's say I have 75 files of type .xls (Excel worksheet) in a directory. If
I try to save another Excel-worksheet in the directory, one of the files's
extensions is truncated to just a "x". Maybe it is the file located at the
end of FAT that is truncated, I have not checked that yet. Is this a known
problem and if so, is there a solution?
