Samba/Ralph's Printing packages...
-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
I'm running woody, with Ralph's kde stable packages. A recent addition of
Ralph's Printing stable packages updated samba to 2.2.7a-0.9woody1 and seems
to have introduced a very bizarre bug...
If I try and copy a file from a W2K-based machine to a samba share, I get a
dialogue box: "Cannot copy <filename>: The specified network name is no
longer available". This creates a 0-byte file on the samba share with the
correct name. If I drag the file over a second time, and reply "Yes" to the
"File already exists - do you want to replace?" dbox, the file copies fine.
If I drag multiple files, it stops each time after creating a 0-byte file on
the samba share. If I create multiple 0-byte files (by individually dropping
a number of files and dismissing the error box each time) and then drop the
same files again, en masse, a "Yes To All" enables me to copy all the files
in one go.
Anyone got any ideas? This was working fine before the updates...
