Yet another case preservation question.

Hello all,

I'm having a curious case preservation problem.  When I searched 
the archives, I found similar questions asked before, but was unable to 
find an answer that does the trick.

In my case, I have two samba servers.  The first is still running version
1.9.17p3 the second is using 2.0.5a.  Both servers are on HP-UX 10.20 

The client software we are having a problem with is Autocad version 14.0 
running on an NT4.0 SP5 workstation.

I'm seeing the somewhat common problem of file names being forced to
NOTE:  This is only happening on the 2.0.5a server.
I have checked the "preserve case" and the "short preserve case" parameters.
are both set to yes.  As an additional note, other applications such as
and Notepad seem to avoid this case preservation problem.

Has anyone else figured out what is going on here.  As I have said before,
the problem
has been posted a few times, but I have not seen a resolution.

Thanks for any help you can offer.
