I just upgrade from 3.0.13 to samba 3.0.23b and after upgrade DOS Lanman Clients could not execute BATCH or EXE files stored on a samba share.

Client can see, type and copy the file but cannot execute ! It can execute the batch file copy to C:

I dig a little and found: http://lists.samba.org/archive/samba/1997-November/004734.html

So I try to disable dos filetimes 

   dos filetimes = no

But did not work. 

I'm now seting up a server for test and see more debug messages.

Please, some one could help me?

Thank you
