Corruption problems have nothing to do with file sizes.
I remember that I postet a problem on November, 9th 2001  ( oplock problem ).
I could create inconsistent data in a file on a samba share because of locking problems.
This was a real corruption of data even if the file was small.

As Jeremy wrote in this thread, the problem was IMMEDIATELY solved, he was so fast that I had not even sent in my sample application.
