------- Additional Comments From umagesh@rediffmail.com  2001-10-15 08:27 -------
Some wider problems when using Samba:
Assume I am connecting to a Unix file system from Win using samba.
Assume there are two hard files myfile (size 3) and MYFILE (size 5)
All of Ant's current tasks will pick the wrong file when executed from windows.
For example:

<delete file="h:/MYFILE"/>

will actually end up deleting myfile  

So, there isn't much we can do with Samba case-sensitive files as it is really a
Java file handling problem.

Just wanted to share this so that we are aware.

Thanks,
Magesh
