[Samba] last file missing from wildcard searches (3.0.13)

Hi all,

	We're at the preliminary stages of investigating this, but I
can't find any references to it on a Google etc.

Anyway.  We've just moved from 3.0.6 to 3.0.13 and users report a file
being missing.

On investigation it turns out that (as far as we could tell in a 5
minute minor panic) the last file in a directory is not included in
a wildcard search.  (last file is defined by 'ls -f').

Naming the file explicitly is not affected, but any wildcard (such as
'ls' or 'ls *B' fails to find the file.

This behaviour is consistent with both  Win XP SP1  and  smbclient

We're continuing to investigate, and when we've got the minimal
reproducible test cvase, we'll file a bugzilla report, but I just wanted
to flag this up here and now.

We've rolled back to 3.0.6 for now.

IRIX 6.5.5, Samba 3.0.6 with quotas support compiled in.  All compiled
from source.
