Yeah I'm concerned about that, as people do use Samba on large
Solaris servers mainly. Solaris fcntl lock code has had historical
problems with mmapped files (doesn't work over NFS as I recall)
and we really need this to work right for tdb.

Any more info would help, even if it just gets us a workaround to
a Solaris bug (not that I'm implying Solaris has a bug here, it's
just a possibility :-) :-).
