I have had to set "oplocks = false" in the homes section of my smb.conf
otherwise when I try to open an existing word document from a network
drive I get the error:

"Word failed reading from the file (xxxx)
 Please restore the network connection or
 replace the floppy or disk and retry"

I am using BRANCH_NTDOM version of samba.  This doesn't happen with
1.9.18p4.   Anyone got any ideas?
