I'm not currently running Samba anywhere so I cannot tell if these are the magic variables or not (sorry) but their descriptions sound like one , or both, of these might do the trick. Also, you might try searching the Networking forum to see if anyone's tackled this problem over there.
Hope this helps out...
I spent a couple of days (=too much) to try to find any "workarounds", but could not find any. It seems that the way the win-partitions are mounted in the file system overrides any samba setting. It just doesn't work.
Regarding your second comment, yes, I will post this question in the networking group, but those guys are the victims and not the reason! Any other recommendations for where to address this issue?
