I am aware of the differences in case treatment between Linux and 
Windows. This is not related to case.
The filenames in question are automated and ALWAYS take the following form:

M09010901A001C.ps
M09010901A002C.ps
M09010901A003C.ps

etc, etc.


(By the way, the Samba share settings are not "share only". According to 
the man pages, share settings can be used globally. The inverse is not 
true: global settings can only be used globally.)

Thank you for your answer, though.
