Right now I am having two kinds of problems.
The first one seems to be a incorrect calculation in
and creates empty files (correct file length but filled with zeroes).
You can see error messages in the samba log and using a network trace
like ethereal. This was only introduced recently (05/24).

The second problem I encountered seems to be related to oplocks. If you
get messages with "oplock break" you may be hit by this problem. Try
turning off oplocks in this case.
