Weird Mac-Windows behavior.

    I have an xserve running 10.5.5 running as an ldap master and file server.
    It works allright (most users are on osx) few windows users. One particular folder has been giving me issues. The sub folders in there appear fine on osx machines, 10.5, 10.6 and 10.7 while some of the folders created lately appear gibberish to windows machines (random long alphanumerical string instead of the name) and are not accessible.
    Has anybody seen this before what might be causing this? Looking for suggestions.

    Hmmm. Haven't heard of that. How "deep" are these folders? Windows has a path length limitation that you might be hitting...

    Only 4-5 directories deep from the sharepoint.
    Really weird.
