Thanks.  That's the info I needed.  And thanks to everyone for 
suggestions and help.  I'm probably going to just have an applescript or 
folder syncing program put on the Mac server for now and make other Mac 
clients just dump stuff to my netatalk share.  I will be investigating 
fixing this so any info on developing samba would be helpful.  For 
example, Urban Widmark told me where the relevant stuff was in 
cliconnect.c.  I'll be looking at traces between Windows boxes and the 
server, etc.  Thanks for your help and I hope I'll have a positive 
result (not to mention the time to do it :) )for this soon.
