hide dot files problem

Hi all.  I'm using 'hide dot files = yes' in my smb.conf and it doesn't
seem to want to hide directories like .emacs, .pgp, etc..

I've tried it both in the relevant stanza, and in the global section, yet
it doesn't work.

I've also tried 'hide files = .*' and that doesn't seem to work either.
Any ideas what I'm doing wrong?

This is with 1.9.17.
