Hello Jeremy,

I am DESPERATE. We have 80 users of a public hospital that makes pressure to me 
to solve the problem s we have. I continued to search the reason we get the 
DISK FULL ( Original: Die Festplatte ist voll ).

I found this strange things:

1. If I save the file to my hd and copy it with Explorer I get no message.

2. I I copy the Excel table, create a new table, Insert the copied data to this 
new table and save it, it works.

It worked well with the first version of 2.2.2 we installed, but I did update 
from cvs because of the other error you patched regarding dos applications not 
getting the right file lenght.

One IMPORTANT question:

Why do I see in the log filenames different from the filename I saved. This 
names are all numeric ( hex ? ). Does Excel generate temporary files before 
saving ?

I must thank the samba team for the three painless years we use samba and I am 
optimistic that you can solve the problems
