Good news/bad news . . . we tried things with "large readwrite = yes" and
got the same issue.  Just a few minutes ago though, Command Antivirus
released an update that once applied corrects the problem.  Among the
fixes in the release notes for the AV upgrade:

  "Some customers reported that when MS Windows NetWare(r) Client
   is installed, temporary files are created repeatedly when saving
   a MS-Office application file from Windows NT to a NetWare server.
   This has been fixed."

We do not have a Netware client loaded nor did we change anything on the
client between the w2k->samba failure and the w2k->w2k success.
