Hi Eric,

I reported the same problem as you did on Tue May 20 22:12:24 GMT 2003 
in this list.

May I ask you if you get any response from the samba org? - I'm not. I 
think the same as you, the behavior of the wide links are not the 
correct one. It would be better to check the physical location of the 
sym-links and compare them. Further I think there is also a possible 
buffer overrun in this function?!

(We using quite the same thing with compat-links for Clearcase 
envoirement and we can't migrate to 2.2.8a now :( )!

Tnx 4 your short answer in advance.

- Thomas
