I am a Samba newbie using 3.0.27 and noticed that Samba allows me to 
create directories in Samba shares on Windows that have the same name, 
but different case. For example, "TEST", "tEsT", "test", and "TESt" are 
all permitted directory names in the same path (root directory of the 
Samba share). This seems like a bad thing since Windows itself does not 
allow this with local hard drives.

Am I missing a very simple setting in Samba to suppress this "feature"? 
Thank you so much in advance for helping out a Samba newbie!
