Not really. Samba just does not sort the directory before
shipping it to the client. For huge directories this would
be way too expensive. We could certainly implement this, but
so far we have viewed directory sorting to be a client task,
and we got away with it pretty well. If critical
applications change under that behaviour, our view might
change though.
