[Samba] Problem with MacOSX and filenames ending in white space

I have an OSX Client to a Linux Samba server (samba-3.0.23c-4 on CentOS4)

When the client saves a filename that ends in one or more white spaces,
OSX create also files starting with a dot.
The filenames are correct in Linux but the OSX client see only garbage as
the filename.

I think is a problem with the .DS_Store file created by OSX.

If you delete the whitespace of the filename in OSX and then copy
the file, the problem is gone.

Is this a know issue between OSX and Samba, or is a problem with
OSX and any Windows server?

Many thanks
