removing false oplocks

I am using samba 2.2 and I had to stop samba (with a script that uses
kill -15) and restart it. However, I found that several false oplocks
were left behind (during the restart not all people logged out of their
applications on windows machines that were using files on the unix nfs
I could find no way to remove these false oplocks at all under samba
2.2. The samba locks directory contains database files (extension .tdb)
and I could not find a way of getting the false oplocks out of them.
The only way I could get rid of the false oplocks was for everybody to
logout, the restart samba once more.
Surely there must be a better way than that to remove stale (false)
oplocks in samba 2.2?
Does anyone know how to do this?
Your help will be greatly appreciated.
