We have been doing some further testing. Using a Windows client to list a
directory with a sufficient number of entries will result in one or more
names being missed. Then I read through the Release Notes for Samba
3.0.20a <http://www.samba.org/samba/history/samba-3.0.20a.html> and saw
o Missing files from directory listings on AIX servers
* BUG 3010: Fix missing files bug on AIX systems.
This matches our symptoms. Will try upgrading.
