Sure: it's a performance problem with locks
which shows up when locking the index file of
a dbm-style database (which have two files, an
index and a data file), and which is being shared
via Samba with PC clients. At least one site,
and probably two, have the problem. I'm following
it with considerable interest (I work for Sun, you
see, although not on Samba (:-))
It doesn't affect the performance of Samba on
Solaris in general, and oddly enough it doesn't
seem to hit MS Access...

It's not related to the problem you see, with ordinary
oplocked .doc files. One wouldn't oplock dbm files!
