[Samba] Directory Timestamp Problem in Dfs Root

I think I may have found a problem with the time/date stamp Samba is
returning for Dfs links.

We are running Samba 2.2.3a built with the --with-msdfs config option on a
RedHat 7.2 linux machine.  Right now the only share we have is a Dfs root
that contains a few thousand Dfs links.  When we do a "dir" in a command
prompt mapped to that drive only the first 160 links show the correct
time/date stamp.  If I do a "dir" to a drive mapped to another Samba server
that contains a few thousand real directories the time stamps all look
correct.  Here is an excerpt of the directory listing:

03/28/2002  11:36a      <DIR>          hillier
03/28/2002  11:36a      <DIR>          jeffg
03/28/2002  11:36a      <DIR>          kaba
03/28/2002  11:36a      <DIR>          sloneker
03/28/2002  11:36a      <DIR>          v1voss
12/23/1935  02:39a      <DIR>          gardinor
12/23/1935  02:39a      <DIR>          johnthom
12/23/1935  02:39a      <DIR>          mcurrie
12/23/1935  02:39a      <DIR>          markpf
12/23/1935  02:39a      <DIR>          eschmitt

I have a few log files at various debug levels but I cannot see anything
obviously failing.

Thanks for any suggestions,
