I suspect I'm getting the same problem on woody with XP clients. I've not
been able to find much information about it. The best I've been able to
find was at:


but my German is almost non-existant so I can only guess what it is saying

In order to keep everyone happy I've put "oplocks=no" and "strict
locking=yes" on each share but I'm worried that this will cause performance

Is there a better solution? As more people switch to Windows XP this could
present more problems for debian users :(
