I am runnig the latest samba on Solaris 2.7. My Win app is a Win2K program. 
It is trying to create a nested directory and gets cannot create error. Here 
is the error message form the log file.

[2001/09/20 17:06:51, 0] smbd/open.c:open_directory(1217)
  open_directory: unable to create 07252119/CR. Error was No such file or 

In this example, the alient is trying to create 07252119/CR directory when 
07252119 doese not exist. Is there a patch for this?
