Hi Everybody
I got some shares on a winxp sp2 machine, trying to mount them on a ubuntu
machine, I can mount successfully but can't see any file in them (empty
mount points).
This happened after a client system upgrade to ubuntu 10.0.4 from 9.10.
I tried also to compile last samba stable version (3.5.6) but i got same
results..empty directories.
I can't figure out if problem is on Linux or Windows side..
Here some information about my configuration, thank you in advance for any

// on /mnt type cifs (rw,mand)
