This is probably your problem.  You override the default mangling method
in samba3 from hash2 to hash.  hash2 behaves more like Windows mangling.

>         mangling method = hash

Either take this line out or change it to hash2.  You may need to take
care that existing filenames whose names have already been mangled with
the hash method get remangled with hash2 method.
