During the setup of a backup routine using rsync & samba 2.2.3a-6 I saw
that long share names on Samba are shown truncated on a windows
98 machine. Only the first 13 characters are shown. I use debian 2.2.? (4 I think)
On google I read a message stating this is caused by samba using Ascii &
windows using unicode to communicate. The message continued to say that
samba was modified from v 2.2.x to work also in unicode. A later reply
denied this, saying this was only true in the "HEAD" version?
what is this HEAD version?
