Hi there


Samba 3.0.10
Gentoo Linux 2.6.9-gentoo-r12
gcc version 3.3.4

I am mounting a windows share.  In one specific directory on the share, 
samba 95% does not list the files but gives a kernel error in syslog namely:
kernel: smb_proc_readdir_long: error=-2, breaking

This only happens in this directory.  The share structure for the 
directory is \\xena\shared\Working Documents.
Other directories with spaces work perfectly.  It is only this directory.

I have searched the list archives and came across one person who had the 
same problem but seems to have disappeared without much correspondence.

Any ideas.
