I'm sorry, but I don't see a problem with these filenames on Samba:
$ touch a.b.
$ ls -l
-rw-r--r-- 1 corinna vinschen 0 2010-04-07 10:36 AB2F49~0
$ ls -l a.b.
-rw-r--r-- 1 corinna vinschen 0 2010-04-07 10:36 a.b.
$ rm a.b.
$ touch "abc "
$ ls -l
-rw-r--r-- 1 corinna vinschen 0 2010-04-07 10:40 AZIJUG~1
$ ls -l "abc "
-rw-r--r-- 1 corinna vinschen 0 2010-04-07 10:40 abc
$ rm "abc "
I also tested cvs, and it didn't complain about filenames with a
dot as the 9th char.
