I tried it here with both with samba-2.0.0beta4 and 2.1prealpha. I can
create shortcut with UNC on NT pointing to samba (both versions) and on
samba pointing to other samba. All works. I double click on it and get
notepad (the file is boot.ini). So something is different. I have pretty
vanilla setup on both; both samba's are running with domain securtiy.

Can you check, what is really in lnk file (use someting like od or hd). May
be, a simple typo?
