Yes, and that's okay, because DOS/Windows needs it this way.
If you convert it to UNIX-style it won't work under DOS/Windows anymore
and you would have to convert it back DOS/Windows-style !!!!

Don't know, but i'd bet there's none because Samba shall 
IN NO WAY way convert/interpret a file ...
I think your problem is not a real samba-problem,
it's (i think) a problem of editing files in two worlds ...
