2.2.3a didn't handle ADSs very well, so you would get, when copying a
JPG file with ADSs associated to it, 3 files when copying it to a Samba
(ADSs created by some odd media microsoft thingy)
The 2 extra files would contain what would seem to the ordinary user
like crap, since it's just metadata, they would also have large
filenames, which explains the mangling.
The first file would remain intact.
2.2.4 doesn't show the same behaviour.
I think it was you who, when a coworker of me asked the same question,
answered that, when we asked the same question a few monthes ago.
Or was it Jerry?
