I'm with you on that one...

Another dumb question... It's a Samba share on a
Windows box right? If so, good. If it's in a Linux box
- bad. Linux ntfs writing support doesn't work and
will screw your disk. I'm pretty certain you already
know this, but I just thought I'd ask.

That just about maxes out my immediate knowledge of
such things. I recall you saying ages ago you used Red
Hat, is that still true? Could it be a bug?

Sorry to be not helping much...
