Hello all,

We've had to roll out a dfs stub server to cope with a migration, and
we've noticed that explorer.exe will fail whenever a UNC path that
traverses the graft point is pasted into the address bar. Start-Run
works fine, ie7 works fine,

For example,
\\server1\share\graft

is a dfs redirect to:
\\server2\share\fun

and under that server2 path is the directory structure:
a/b/c/d

Pasting the UNC path \\server1\graft\a\b\c into the explorer.exe address
bar causes:
Windows cannot find '\\server1\graft\a\b\c' Check the spelling and
try again.

However, pasting \\server1\graft into the explorer address bar, and
navigating through works as expected. As noted above, Start-Run works as
expected, ie7 works as expected.

It's obviously some different handling in explorer.exe, is anyone aware
of either a samba fix/patch (oh please) or a registry fix for explorer?
