Samba file locking

Having a few hassles with databases on Samba (2.0.7)
Databases are Access & FoxPro based. (yes we're a MS shop unfortunately!)
Samba seems to be allowing only exclusive access to these DBs.  Ie: Database
spits dummy if any more than one user tries to connect.
I've played around with the oplock options etc, but there's no difference.
I put dbf, mdb, cdx files  in the veto oplock files parameter, but they
still come up in smbstatus as EXCLUSIVE+BATCH.
Are there other options that I don't know of to fix these problems?
