samba how to display files with colon in their names?

Samba does not display files correctly when they contain a colon.

Original file name: test:file.txt

Display name under Windows: T8S6CH~R.TXT

How can I fix it?

Info:

Linux: SLES 11 SP 3

Samba: Version 3.6.3-0.33.39.1-3128-SUSE-CODE11-x86_64

For some reason Samba started to mangle the file names containing a colon. That far I could not find anything regarding this behavior in Internet.

The solution is very simple. Adding mangled names = no in the [global] section to /etc/samba/smb.conf and restarting Samba fixed the issue.
