[Samba] MS DOS 7 XCopy copies the same file over and over

We use MS DOS 7 ala Win98 SE and the M$ client for DOS to logon to Samba 3.0.13 Debian Stable package from samba.org. Also one other unique thing, we have XCOPY32.EXE copied as XCOPY.EXE thus it is 
really XCOPY32.EXE we are executing, just as XCOPY.EXE. ;-)

Example of failing line of code...
echo f|xcopy u:\foo\bar.txt h:\file.txt

where U: is the drive mapped to the server and H: is a local RAM drive using XFSDSK. The file is copied over and over and over. This is not consistent for all files on the servers, others copy 
correctly only one from the server drive to the RAM drive.

Please advise if I should, for example, get a log 10 of this behavior or something.
