Thanks for fixing oplock.c for Linux 2.0 in 2_2 CVS

Wouldn't it be neat if we could do _better_ than MS at their own game and somehow prevent the
win9x client bug from getting triggered in case of timeout disconnections?

Ah - this is very interesting, thanks for pointing this out.

Using the registry setting here :



and setting it to 1 (meaning 1 minute) I have perfectly
reproduced this client problem with Win98 client, W2K

I thought they might have some heuristics to avoid running
into this bug themselves when talking to a Win98 client
but no - it's just that their timeout on autodisconnect
is much longer......

This means we're completely the same as a W2K server in
this respect - we probably need to add a big warning message
to the timeout parameter on the man page, but I don't think
any code changes would help.
