Windows SMB Directory List Oddness :(

Does anyone know if there’s some sort of built in limitation to the Windows SMB implementation that causes it not to display large directories? I have a share on my Samba 3.0.4 server which has 542 directories in it. They all have the same permissions on the fileserver, and all directories display when mounted on a linux machine via smbmount (or even just through the mount command).

However, under windows it only sees 131 directories. If I type in the path directly in the location bar, the directory and files in it display just fine. Other shares (at least ones with large number of files in them) don’t seem to have this problem.

Any help anyone?

Never mind, now it seems to be working. WTF??? Stupid computers!
