Ross, there's no point sending thre response to just me - if you do
that, how will anybody elese help?
Did you mean to send a zero-byte strace.txt file as an attachment?
It looks empty to me, at least.

Find does find the plain files on the network drive - but it's giving
errors on the directories, saying they don't exist.

Yes - I have used the files on that server for several years.

A few directory names contain upper case letters but most of them are all

I only have one Samba server and don't really want to reconfigure it.
It's used for my business and has worked for years with Win98, WinNT,
WinXP, Debian Linux, and FreeBSD.
I just recent started using the igrep package with XEmacs, which calls
find and grep, and that's when the problems started.

Incidentally, when I run find 4.1.7 on another machine with an older
installation, it works correctly with the Samba drive. The cygwin1.dll
version on that machine is 1.5.10-0x5E6/2004-05-25 22:07.
The machine that doesn't work has find/4.3.0 and
On that machine that did not work, I also tried the newest snapshot of the
cygwin1 dll (at the suggestion of another developer) but the failure was
exactly the same.
