Problem is that all of those are illegal characters in Windows filenames
and Samba is an emulation of SMB, so they also need to be illegal on
Samba. I cannot see how Samba could make them legal when connected to by
a Linux machine, but illegal when connected to by a Windows machine, I
mean how would Samba easily know what was connecting ?
