[Samba] samba & VISIO documents

Hey Jeremy,

Strange.. it turns out the problem was caused by case sensitivity.  I had
set the samba server to be case sensitive.. and for some reason, it breaks
when VISIO loads the file..

my guess is that VISIO does some sort of upper-casing or lower-casing behind
the scenes..

In any event, it looks like everything is working fine now.

Can I see a capture trace of this, as well as a debug level 10.
I'd like to see a capture trace of it working to a Win2k server
opening the same file with the same path as well if possible.
