[Samba] File listing problems in 3.0.13

Over the weekend I upgraded my IRIX servers to 3.0.13 and have found many 
strange issues regarding the creation of new folders.

When I attempt to add a new folder through the Windows side I get an immediate 
error dialog box stating "You may not be able to access file created in the 
folder X:\New Folder."

When I select to continue the folder is created, looking on the IRIX side the 
file permissions are good and there is no additional ACL information.

If you go into the folder and create a text file it will create it but it will 
not be visible on the Windows side. In fact when you browse through the 
directories you can see into any folders except those which were created under 
3.0.13. I have reinstalled 3.0.12 and do not see any evidence of these problems 
so I was curious if there is any IRIX specific changes that I should look for 
that was changed between 3.0.12 and 3.0.13?

I am running IRIX 6.5.20 and 6.5.26, Winodws 2000 and Windows XP.

And configured it with the following options:

./configure 	--cache-file=/dev/null \
                 --prefix=/usr/local/samba \
                 --with-libiconv=/usr/local \
 		--with-acl-support \
                 --without-ldap \
                 --without-ads \

Although I have also tried it without the ACL support with the same results.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
