[Samba] filename mapping

Using samba.2.2.5 I have a problem with Windows<->Unix filename mapping.

On Unix the file is named: "??"???,???.HTM
On Windows it is displayed as ~N#.HTM

However, when I try to delete the file I get a file not found failure.  It appears 
that the mapping may not be symetric.

I will be moving the service to 3.0.7 in a couple of months so I am not too worried 
if this problem is not also in 3.0.7.
