Hello list,
Im trying to migrate some shares from an old 3.0.14 samba installation 
to a 3.5.10 and run into a mangling issue.
Both systems have mangling method = hash set.
Acessing  \\oldserver\rec\Arquivo\ARQUI~XX points me to 
\\oldserver\rec\Arquivo\Arquivo 2011
In the new server it points me to 
\\newserver\rec\Arquivo\Arquivo2007 . Notice the difference at the 
final directory level.
Also tried with  samba 3.6.5 and the results were similar.
Is there anything else I may be missing?
