[Samba] %U doesn't replaced in smb.conf

Hi! :o)

I've got an Debian linux running on an Alpha machine.I had a Celeron
II before, with Samba 2.2.6. I've made the change to Samba 3.0.0 and
then I've just upgraded to 3.0.2a tonight. In the old smb.conf I've
had a line "include = /etc/samba/configs/%U.conf" that was good in the
old state, but with the new it doesn't work. I find out that the samba
does not replace the %U in the include line (just before the include
I've got a logon script = %U.bat and that's working! ). The error
says: "/etc/samba/configs/.conf does not exists".
I've found some words about this problem searching on the net, but I was not able to
correct or even understand the problem. Can anyone help?

I have another crazy bug-or-something! With the first server and the
samba 2.2.6 we created (in the company I work) some folders with
pretty long names (and even accented ones :) With the new server ALL
(!) of the Win98SEs die with bluescreen or reset the PC if some of
these directories are opened. What should I check? What logging
paramteres should I make a log for someone, who can help?
The problem is the length of the names for sure (max length around 80 chars),
because if I rename the long ones to 3 chars I can enter the
directory, and I can open tham, and everything is good.

ThankS, BYE:

Sorry for my English ,-)
