Maybe this would get fixed in conjunction with fixing the known problem
that CIFS mounts of win9x and OS/2 shares show the beginning-of-epoch
timestamps for all directories and files. A better answer might come
from the samba-technical or cifs list. Also you could search bugzilla:
"Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time
we will reap a harvest if we do not give up."	Galatians 6:9 NIV
