I'm very sorry, but I cannot find any way to send you my bug report.

Can you please send my bug report to the right place, or tell me what
should I do to send it to the right person?

Thank you very much!

Subject: a directory refresh bug in dos.

We have an annoying bug in the recent samba releases from
"Version 1.9.18p10" ahead. Running on any system (Solaris on SUN,
or Linux on PC), and having dos clients with Microsoft Lan Manager
2.2c, using any file manager like Volcov Commander, Norton Commander or
Dos Navigator, if I change to an upper level directory, where there are
less files than in the previus, the listing of files does not refresh,
and only explicit refreshment (^R) changes the screen. (I can even
navigate between these files, and get the error massage only after I want
to do something with it.)

When we first met the problem (a year ago), we decided to use the older
version (1.9.18p10), and hoped, that the problem will came out, and 
be fixed. Recently I tried out one of the newest versions (2.0.7 on a
linux), and found the problem still beenig there.

Thank you, to helping us!
