I see the same behavior with 3.50rc3 when I look from windows explorer at
files created on the share by OS X all the extra OSX stuff is visible: a
and a file caled
plus one ._file for each other os x file there.
man smb.conf says
Default: hide dot files = yes
and it makes me wonder how it looked on older versions. I have 3.0.33
setup on a centos box but I can't access it until Monday next to compare.
