I'll see what we can get for you.  We don't have a W2K server here so I
can't get that part.

It's easy to reproduce this on our systems just by attempting to create a
new document using Frontpage 2000 or Word 2000.  I think that you haven't
been able to reproduce it because of the strange circumstance under which
this began.  We use Command Antivirus for Windows 2000 on our desktops.
After we upgraded to version 4.62.0 of the antivirus software, we began to
experience this regularly as long as oplocks are on.  With oplocks off, I
see an unlink request after the second open which allows things to
succeed.  Reproducing the problem seems to involve using the specific
antivirus package on the client.
