[Samba] mangling problems?

I'm experiencing strange problems due to file names. I'm using samba 3.0.9 on 
a suse 9.1 system, and the problems are the following:
1) I've added the default case = lower and preserve case = no probably after 
some clients had already added a few folders with the same name but different 
cases, like "folder" and "Folder". Now the clients are able to see both the 
folder, but the files in each of them are missing (even if connecting thru 
ssh I can see them). Deleting a folder, the problem disappear, but I'd like 
to know how to fix this for all the folders (except moving files and deleting 
2) folders with names that ends with "." or an italian character like è,à,ò, 
make the files within them invisible, and sometimes are changed to strange 
name like V~FTR. Can anybody explain how to fix it?
