Well, i found a partial solution now, as long as you have windows 
2k/XP/2k3 clients, you can use CIFS instead of SMBFS, it works without 
skipping files.
However i have another slight problem now, du reports wrong directory 
sizes on cifs shares, ls -l however reports all files and their sizes 
correctly, and df also shows the correct share used and free space... 
weird.. anyway maybe that could help you - ill further try to 
investigate about the CIFS problem, its the successor of smbfs anyway..
