Description Carlos Barrueto 2009-10-19 12:08:49 UTC
When surfing on an smb share which lies in a xp machine, while right clicking on a folder and selecting Properties, it reports a false/wrong folder size. Compared to the actual folder size after copying to my computer.

This happens because libsmb generates same inode numbers for different files. I've submitted bugreport with patch to theirs bugzilla:

Thanks for the information! I guess this can be closed as NOTGNOME then.
