[Samba] copying a folder removes the 'hidden' attribute

I have extended attributes enable in the file system so the 'hidden' and
other attributes should be saved as an extended attribute.
When connecting to the share from a Windows computer, if I copy a FILE
then the new file stays hidden, but if I copy a FOLDER then the new
folder is NOT hidden.
I tried this on a Windows file server and it does preserve the 'hidden'
attribute, which is what I want. I know this isn't really critical, but
it's annoying when copying a folder with hidden subfolders. All the
hidden subfolders are now un-hidden and I have to go through and re-hide
Is this a bug, or maybe there is something I can do about it? I'm using
Samba 3.0.23d from the Debian Etch repository.
