>Here is a scenario where Samba 2.2.3a fails, but 2.2.2 succeeds:
>1. make a samba folder in W2K SP2 offline available
>2. disconnect from network, go offline
>3. create a sample file on client, i.e. a simple text file
>4. you can access it
>5. go online and synchronize files
>6. still can access it
>7. go offline again
>8. "access denied" message appears when try to open the file offline
9. Go back online
10. Try to access - get "access denied"
11. Try to access again - succeeds

I'll start looking at ethereal...
