what does samba if a client locks a byte range behind the end of the file ?
This could be important because it looks like many 'corruption' problems
happern with foxpro files.
Foxpro uses dbf files like clipper and dbase. All this application does
NOT lock the real record they want to lock but lock a area at a 2GB
offset ( or 1 GB, i don't remeber exactly ). They do this to give other
clients the chace to read locked areas.
