Well I started digging into it, and it seems its making executables show up
as hidden. Which seems really odd, here's an ls -l from my Solaris
-rw-r--r-- 1 iacm staff 0 Oct 12 11:10 notHidden
-rwxr-xr-x 1 iacm staff 0 Oct 12 11:09 showsUpHidden
The file names describe which one is which.
If I did a chmod 755 on notHidden, it would then show up hidden.
Any clues to why this is happening? It doesn't seem to be on all our
shares... but from one share in particular...
its smb settings are
comment = Home directories
browseable = yes
path = /home
public = yes
writeable = no
printable = no

I have a string occurance one one machine.
We have a Solaris 2.6 machine, running Samba 2.2.4.
When going through the files from my Win2000 SP3 machine, I see some files
are showing up as hidden. When I copy them over to my machine, they stay
marked as hidden files. I can't figure out what is making it think these
files are hidden. They don't have a . prefix or anything.
