[Samba] Problems using smbclient with a Win2k server

Hi all,

I have a set of files that are shared from a Windows 2000 Server that
smbclient can't access but Windows 2000 clients and DAVE clients can.

I am using samba 2.2.5.

Here's an example from smbclient:

[mark at protagonist ~]$ smbclient //medusa/share
added interface ip= bcast= nmask=
Domain=[STAFF] OS=[Windows 5.0] Server=[Windows 2000 LAN Manager]
smb: \> cd "\Ryan Audio\SFX\noisemakers\ Underwater ambienced\"
smb: \Ryan Audio\SFX\noisemakers\ Underwater ambienced\> get 
NT_STATUS_OBJECT_NAME_NOT_FOUND opening remote file \Ryan
Audio\SFX\noisemakers\ Underwater ambienced\uwCrickets_owls-01.wav
smb: \Ryan Audio\SFX\noisemakers\ Underwater ambienced\> ls
NT_STATUS_NO_SUCH_FILE listing \Ryan Audio\SFX\noisemakers\ Underwater

                38154 blocks of size 1048576. 11373 blocks available
smb: \Ryan Audio\SFX\noisemakers\ Underwater ambienced\> ls
  .                                   D        0  Tue Oct  1 14:45:16
  ..                                  D        0  Tue Oct  1 14:45:16
  uwCrickets_owls-01.wav              A   883168  Tue Oct  1 14:35:28
<rest of listing snipped>

Here's something else that is strange.  A directory listing of the Win2k
machine shows this file being named:


with a tiny dot underneath the s.  I'm guess that someone managed to
insert an odd character in the filename somehow (I suspect DAVE).

Is this a known bug in smbclient/samba?  Is there any way to configure
samba/smbclient to work with these "odd" characters?
