samba share name lengths

I seem to recall that Windows NT/95/98 allow long (>32) names to be
visible as share names. However, samba seems to limit my share names to
13 characters in version 2.2.1a. If I create a share with a name longer
than that, it cannot be accessed. Am I missing something?

Thanks for your help.
