Does this happen if:
- You are writing from W/98 to Samba
- You are using the GUI interface (Windows Explorer)
- The Samba server is in 'security=server' mode

If so, try mounting the share using the IP address instead of the NetBIOS
name.  Yes, I know it sounds strange, but try it.  If the above conditions
are met, and this kludge fixes the problem, then it is a known problem. 
(It's a Windows Explorer "feature" that shows up when the Samba server is
in 'security=server' mode.)

If things match up, let me know and I'll provide more details.
