I know what you mean :)

Hi Franz,

Nevertheless I believe the fallback to
NtQueryDirectoryFile(FileIdBothDirectoryInformation) does not do what you
want if the path is the root directory of a share. But that's not the cause
of this problem.

Yeah, as I wrote in my reply, the NtQueryDirectoryFile branch isn't
supposed to be hit in this scenario.  It's solely for "access denied"

Got it.

Are you set up to build your own Cygwin DLL so you can test the above
patch locally?

Not really, but since I've already created a few testcases for Novell now, I
have my own little "framework" using ntdll.dll directly. I added your code
to it and it showed:

C:\NovellQueryAllInformationFile\Debug>NovellQueryAllInformationFile.exe t:\
NtQueryInformationFile(FileAllInformation) 't:\' resulted in errorcode
c7e90006, description: (no description)
Returned filename:  ''
NtQueryInformationFile(FileBasicInformation) 't:\' resulted in errorcode 0,
description: STATUS_WAIT_0
NtQueryInformationFile(FileStandardInformation) 't:\' resulted in errorcode
0, description: STATUS_WAIT_0

So your fallback will work nicely. No idea if it's worth it, because I'll
likely get an updated NCP client soon from Novell.

Ok, thank you.  I applied a patch nevertheless, because we can never be
really sure there won't be another filesystems with the same problem.

I uploaded a new developer snapshot to
which contains my fix.  It would be nice if you could give it a try.

Hi Corinna,

the snapshot fixes the problem nicely, thanks!
