  Bernard Faure and Christian Branson have been working to solve
a problem with Interix on NT talking to Samba: it turns out to
be a Samba bug, fixed in first in 2.0.7.

  The symptom is getting a "is a directory" error message when
attempting to list or change into a directory. The solution is to
upgrade to 2.0.7.

  Many thanks to Christian for his help.
