Quoting Erik Meitner (erik at wanderings.us):
> Package: samba
> Version: 2:3.2.5-4lenny14
> Severity: important
> The folder contains 146 directories and 26461 files at the top level. When listing the folder contents only 4616 items are listed. 
> My testing shows this happens with all Linux Samba client implementations I have access to:
>   SMBClient under Ubuntu/10.04, Debian/Squeeze, Debian/Lenny, Debian/Etch
>   GVFS Under Ubuntu/10.04
> It happens from the server itself using the command line client. It does NOT happen with a Windows XP client.

So, the probablem very probably belongs to smbclient more than the
samba server itself. Ideally, this should be investigated directly with
upstream. If this really isn't possible to you, then I can forward the
bug upstreamand act as a proxy...but if you're not scared by Bugzilla,
then it could be worth reporting directly to

Other tests you could do to complete the  already very detailed tests
you did : trying these listing problems with a Windows *server*. (and
of course smbclient from a *nix machine).
