DOS wildcards w/ 2.0.5a

I've recently set up a new server running RH 6.1 and Samba 2.0.5a.  
All our older servers are running 1.9.18p10, and were left that way 
on the "If it ain't broke" principle.

On the new server, I've noticed that DOS wildcards don't work 
correctly for some (but not all) old 16-bit DOS programs running 
under Win95/98.  The symptom is that the program only "finds" the 
first file matching the wildcard spec.

The WHATSNEW.txt file says that 2.0.5a contains a fix for a DOS 
wildcard bug, so I'm wondering if that fix fixed one thing and broke 

I did search the archive of this list, and was surprised to find no 
mention of this problem.  Does anyone have any ideas?
