An example:

I copy a directory using xcopy u:\i386\asms c:\destdir /e 

Where u: is \\myserver\winxpimage\

The asms direcory contains 37 files, and in all Samba versions except
2.2.6 all 37 gets copied.  In 2.2.6, only 21 files get copied.

If I do a recursive dirlist (dir /s), I see all 37 files, even in 2.2.6.

Everytime I copy the directory, the same files are missing.
