Erratic Visibility of NTFS subdirectories
Certain of my directories on NTFS partitions fail to show up in some
contexts. Can anyone help me figure out what is going on?
The missing directories seem to be missing in gnome's file manager
(including the view in gtoaster) and in SAMBA. However, I can see
them fine if I cd to the directory. There is no obvious pattern to
the missing directories; their permissions (as viewed when I boot to
NT) seem the same as the others. When I check from the command prompt
the file attributes are the same for the visible and invisible files.
The samba configuration is that I mount the paritions from Linux, and
then direct my samba shares to the Linux directory.
>From my mtab:
/dev/hda8 /ms/v ntfs ro,uid=1000,gid=103,umask=007 0 0
That's my user account uid and default gid.
Here's a console log from ls -l as that user

The WinFax directory is not visible in gmc; the others are.
