The problem is, that your Samba version apparently screws up the inode

What Samba version is your Mac OS X using?  I'm using 3.0.20a for

Can you upgrade?  The problem is that there's no way for us to

I'm using mac os x 10.4.3 which is using samba version 3.0.10.  So
it's not that old.  However, I did find one reference that implied
that mac did something funny for acl's.

I'm going to try install a non-apple version of samba and see what

Keep us informed, please. I'd rather keep the inode handling as it is now, but we should at least know if there are ways to solve the problem one way or the other.

Can I say "D'oh"? I knew I could ;)

The problem turned out to be a samba configuration issue. Several months ago I had added the parameter "large readwrite = no" to my smb.conf file in order to speed up transfers between my mac and windows. When it's in the configuration file the inodes are messed up. When I remove it, the inodes are fine.

I get the same behavior on a non-apple version of samba... in my case I tried the darwinports version, 3.0.20b, and large readwrite had the same problem.

So problem solved.

Thanks for all you help,
