This is exactly what I fear. Finding a bypass (oplock turned off) and not 
enough customers confirming this problem will certainly put this problem on 
the back of the bugs queue.

I encourage all customers having problems like that to declare it on the lists 
so that we make the developpers realize it is a real samba killer problem !
