I still can't get it to work :-( .
As I guessed earlier it seems Samba is not advertising the
streams-feature. Using the Sysinternals Process Monitor I can see that
on my samba share "Named Streams" is not listed among the
FileSystemAttributes, whereas it is on a Windows XP share. I guess this
is the feature I need. Its absence might be the reason why windows
doesn't try to access some streams (it doesn't explain why it actually
tries to read some streams though).
Is there any way to enable this (preferably without hacking the samba
sources)
Any hints are welcome.
