Fixed in the current 2.0 code stream. Will be fixed in 2.0Beta3.

This *has* to be oplocks. Turn off oplocks on that
share and the problem should go away.

Note that IRIX has added a kernel fix for this oplock
problem with 2.0 running on IRIX 6.5.2f and above -
opens from UNIX clients or via nfs will break Samba oplocks.

The interface is an fcntl one and is supported by
Samba. Let me know if the HPUX kernel team are interested
in supporting it in a future HPUX release.

Buying an operating system without source is like buying
a self-assembly Space Shuttle with no instructions.
