You two may want to compare how your file locking is set up on your samba
share.  I believe what is happening is that when you left click on the file,
the "preview" window has to pen the file and have it ready to play.  Once
windows opens the file, samba probably puts a lock on this file saying it is
opened.  So when someone attempts to rename the file, samba knows the file
is opened and won't let you rename it.

I have just checked with SAMBA_2_2 CVS. I have "Web content in folders"
enbaled, when I click on the file I see VCR-style buttons appear in the
area to the left of the file display (is this what you mean by "preview
screen" ?). I can still rename it easily.

Either I'm not understanding the steps you're using to reproduce this
or the problem really is fixed in 2.2.x CVS. Can you check out the current
CVS tree and see if you still get the problem please ?
