Have you checked whether it works when using a Windows CIFS server?

As per SMS from Reeta, I'm closing this issue since NSN are no longer
using CIFS.

Comment 8 Guenther Deschner 2007-07-04 15:33:12 UTC
Cannot reproduce this with pending RHEL4 samba update 3.0.25b and using cifs
client as of 2.6.9-55.0.2.EL.

Creating nested directories with mkdir -p foo/bar worked without problems.

Comment 10 Zack Cerza 2007-07-05 21:49:20 UTC
Acking anyway since it's testable.
