Byte range locking

I noticed a difference in byte range locking behavior between Samba (2.2.x) and Windows 2000 server, basically on Samba 2.2.x
with strict locking enabled,  a client process which owns a shared byte range lock can write to the locked region, this is not allowed
on Windows 2000 server.  Is there a reason for this Samba behavior?  Is it because of default value of some config option?
