Basically, EA support is luxiory that let you store DOS attributes in a
nicer way, but it's absence shouldn't prevent you from normal work with
shares. But I guess, this is the question for investigation with Jeremy.

As for the EA support in FreeBSD 5.x itself - I've just send bug:


And hope that it'll go into 3.0.14 as well. You may try to take this patches
and apply them to the SVN code - they apply cleanly on 3.0.13, so the chances
are high that you won't get any problems(with patching). Then try SVN build

As for 3.0.12_1 - I do run it at home and at least with W2K all the attributes
are stored properly on UFS2 partition. BTW, don't forget, you may need this
set of lines in your smb.conf to get things work:

    store dos attributes = yes
    map hidden = no
    map system = no
    map archive = no

I'm very interested how this staff works with other client OSes.

Still, I suspect that EA support has minimal impact on the problem you
experience with file operations...
