There is a known problem with win2k and the way smbfs reads
directories. It's possible that XP has the same problem. A directory
can be read in a lot of slightly different ways.


I have a more recent patch but I'm not sure what the URL is.

Note that there have been other dir listing problems where the server
returns an unknown error. This is then printed to the kernel log.
