Yes, that is exactly the case. Just tested what you asked; copied a
file from PC desktop to samba share, then back to desktop, and now the
copy of the file will not copy from the PC desktop to the CE share,
but the original file still copies successfully. This is pretty odd...

I am going to try tcpdump'ing the transfers with old samba vs new
samba to see what the difference is. The same files with same smb.conf
on older samba version is not having this issue.
