[Samba] .doc opens in linux openoffice but not windows

The error on the windows side when opening this particular shared
document in Word is speaks of the document path and name being wrong.

"the Document name or path is not valid"

even copying the document (linux side) to a simpler, short name has not
resolved the issue.

adding :
	mangled case = no
	mangled names = yes
	default case = lower
	case sensitive = no
	preserve case = yes

to the smb.conf has not resolved the issue.

the document is particularly long, 30+ pages with lots of spreadsheets,
but openoffice opens it fine.

any pointers?
