Most networked file systems doesn't really like it when you do:

machine A ---> machine B ---> machine C

I have seen a similar problem with some ftp server (warftpd?) and IIS
(and/or frontpage). I believe this was a known problem with how warftp
created its files - but I don't have any details.

smbfs uses an old SMB to create and open files. You could try this patch
for 2.4.19 that changes this to use a more recent operation (and a lot of 
other things).


I am interested in your feedback on this. I know another nutcase^Wperson
that does something like this, and for him this is finally working ok
(Hi Jochen :). But he may have hacked samba a bit too.
