Could you check what it is? and get a more exact version number (the
Service Pack for NT4, server or workstation, release and name if something
OS/2 based).

Does smbclient have the same problem?

Are there a lot of *.bat and *.cmd files in that dir?

If the server is a windows box, could you provide a listing of the files
that are supposed to be there? (a zip of the actual files would be ok, but
I'm not interested in the file contents just the filenames).

It could be that these files are last in the directory that the server
wants to return and that for some reason the listing is truncated. However
it is really strange if it actually does filter out things based on
filename ... could it be filtering on permissions?

I know these ... I'm trying to help someone else figure out why his
directory listings are truncated and he get's lots of these. I have never
seen them myself vs any windows version I have tested.

That server is an OS/2 of some kind.
