That's what I wanted to hear!

Samba sits between those two worlds of SMB and Posix and has
to map something. This is one of the points where the
mapping hurts, either in reduced functionality for SMB or in
lack of interop with Posix clients.

The good thing with Samba however is: It gives you the
chance to pick between those two! :-)
