Samba listing same file twice and omitting others

Hi Everyone,

I've got freebsd 7.0 RELEASE AMD64 running with samba and ZFS. Everything
seems to work, except samba is incorrectly reporting a small chunk of files.

For certain files, the file appears twice on a windows machine but reading
from both files yields the same file. For other files, it does not report
the file at all. But if you copy the same file again, it will ask you if you
want to replace the existing file. Additionally if you go onto the freebsd
box and do an ls on the files, they will appear correctly (missing ones show
up and duplicates do not).

I tried two different windows boxes (vista and windows xp sp2) and both
behave the same way. All permissions are set to 777 on all files.

Any idea if this is a samba bug?
