Samba 3 question "mangled map"


I am using a Samba 3.0.4-1.27 on a SuSe 9.1 to share files on the network for several Windows boxen (Win98, Win2k, XP Prof.).

Everything else works just fine, but:

I wanted to use the "mangeld map" option, but it doesn't seem to work correctly (or different?) with this version of samba (this option works properly with a samba 2.0.3 on a HP-UX 10.20):

I use mangled map = (*.txt *.tst) (just an example) and the *.txt files appear as *.tst on my windows box, but when I try to open the file I get the error message:

"The file /M:/test.tst cannot be found. Please check the location and try again."

If I delete the mangled map option, I can access the file "test.txt"

Any suggestions?

My smb.config:

# Samba config file created using SWAT
# from (
# Date: 2004/07/23 13:29:14

# Global parameters
workgroup = XXXXX
server string = XXXXX
interfaces =, eth1
bind interfaces only = Yes
map to guest = Bad User
local master = No
domain master = No
ldap suffix = dc=example,dc=com
ldap ssl = no
printer admin = @ntadmin, root, administrator

path = /tmp/michi
valid users = mgross
read only = No
mangled map = (*.html *.htm)
