Yes, I just tried that - same result. We're definately triggering a Win9x
client bug, it behaves differently when talking to Samba than to Win2k,
when talking to Win2k it closes the file before asking for the re-open,
thus not getting the oplock break request. With us, it requests a second
open without doing the close first. I'm still looking at why we cause it
to do that....
