Created a new folder and renamed it. 
Named it the same as a file in the current directory. 
Folder replaces file. (Expected error to be generated)

I am using Nautilus to browse and perform file/dir operations listed
above. I do not have the technical knowledge of samba to determine if
this is expected behavior of the protocol, a server problem, or a client

** Affects: samba (Ubuntu)
