	'hide dot files' should be yes (default). Remove the
options from your smb.conf and run a testparm -v, and then
check what is the value of 'hide dot files'.

	If should work out of the box, without extra options
like 'hide files = .*', anyway, if it is really not working
it looks like a bug, let's test a couple of things first
before "bug" the Samba Developers. ;)

	It is really strange. Can you please send you smb.conf
and the version of samba you are using.
