Default samba client improperly shows the wrong files in directories

Hi Samba List,

I am finding a strange problem between a mount samba directory. Any
clues why this is happening? I have two servers. The samba server is a
Western Digital World Edition II (2) server. The samba client (server)
is running Ubuntu-kernel linux-2.6.24-22-generic

The samba server is exporting the directory: /shares/internal/Music/

The client is mounting the exported directory to /mnt/mybook-music

Now here is the issue.

Samba Client Drive Mount:
On the samba client side I see that the same files 2241 files that
appear in /mnt/mybook (or on the samba server side
/shares/internal/Music) also appear in /mnt/mybook-music/Madonna/Music
(or on the samba server side /shares/internal/Music/Madonna/Music)

Samba Server:
On the samba server side I see 2241 files in /shares/internal/Music (or
/mnt/mybook on the client side) and only 4 files in the
/shares/internal/Music/Madonna/Music directory (or
/mnt/mybook-music/Madonna/Music on the client side). Be advised the
data from the ‘wc –l’ counts an extra line so when the total is 2242
there is in fact only 2241 files.

Why is that happening? Why aren’t only 4 files seen on the samba client
directory since that is only what exists on the samba server side. And
why on the client side there appears to be the same files that same 2241
files that exist in /mnt/mybook-music/ appear in the directory
/mnt/mybook-music/Madonna/Music as well when only 3 files show be
contained in /mnt/mybook-music/Madonna/Music.

What is even more peculiar is that when I use smbclient to log into the
samba server from the samba client machine I see that there are only 3
files in /mnt/mybook-music/Madonna/Music instead of the claimed 2241
files as seen in the mount on the samba client (of the samba server
/mnt/mybook-music/Madonna/Music directory).

Here is the smbclient output details. smbclient properly discovers 3
files in the directory

~$ smbclient //192.168.1.20/Music -Unoah
Password:
Domain=[MYBOOKMUSIC] OS=[Unix] Server=[Samba 3.0.23c]
smb: >
smb: > cd Madonna/Music

Nobody's Perfect.mp3 AH 4814848 Tue May 3 12:35:22 2005

58437 blocks of size 16777216. 42128 blocks available


So lets get some more relevant output here:

From the samba client:
From the client side I do an 'ls -l /mnt/mybook-music/Madonna/Music |
wc -l' see that the output equals the line could of 'mnt/mybook-music'

$ ls -l /mnt/mybook-music/Madonna/Music | wc -l
2242
$ ls -l /mnt/mybook-music | wc -l
2242

From the samba server side:
# ls -l /shares/internal/Music/Madonna/Music | wc -l
4
[root@MyBookMusic Madonna]# ls -l /shares/internal/Music | wc -l
2242

The client sees all the files that are displayed from 'ls
/mnt/mybook-music' command and also displayed from an 'ls
/mnt/mybook-music/Madonna/Music' command.

where on the server side 'ls -l /shares/internal/Music/Madonna/Music'
does not show the contents of '/shares/internal/Music' and only show 3
files.

# ls -l /shares/internal/Music/Madonna/Music
