Have a problem and the vendor is of course trying to blame 
linux/samba.  Goldmine, a contact management app, which installs the app on 
the workstation including all DLL's and simply mantains data files on the 
server, continues to corrupt the data files.  It is not to a point of being 
unusable, we simply have to stop all processing in Goldmine, rebuild all 
indices and continue -- takes about 40 minutes. The vendor has said they do 
not support Linux. Of course I explained this had nothing to do with 
it.  Later they came back and asked if Linux/samba did locking -- I said 
yes (I had level 2 locks turned on) They said to turn then off.  I did -- 
problem is worse.

Bottom line, is anyone else running an app like this off a samba server 
where the app does the record locking but seems to lose it's mind now and 
then?  For what it is worth, the previous version we had (4.0 -- now we are 
at 5.5) did not have any of these problems... You would think the vendor 
would get a clue.
