[Samba] SAMBA weird situation

In windows, do you change the folder settings so that any  hidden files and
system files are displayed.  
In Linux, are you using "ls -a" to show any hidden files?

In Linux/unix, if you have "r" rights on the parent directory you should be
able to see all files with "ls -a", even the hidden ones (which have a . in
front of the file name.)  Depending on how samba is configured the "x" bits
on Linux may be used as the DOS hidden or system flags.

What version of Linux?  What file system on linux?  It looks like it is
probably old enough that you are NOT using extended file systems acl's
(beyond the basic ugo and rwx.)

What version of Windows?

Can you recreate this with non dbase files?

Samba: Version 2.2.10
Kernel: 2.4.31

There is share on the server (for DBASE app) with following config:

        comment = zwierzaki 2.5.04N
        path = /pub/zwierz/
        force user = smbguest
        read only = No
        guest only = Yes
        guest ok = Yes
        dos filetime resolution = Yes

I have found weird situation:
- not every file in shared dir is visible under windows but all files are
visable under unix
- file created under linux is not visable under windows
- file created under windows is not visable under linux

I know it sounds weird, like DBASE shouldn work... but it does.
I will try to restart server on maintenance window as the uptime is 223d
11:11:17.69 - maybe it helps.

Any other ideas what may be wrong ?
