Windows 2003 CIFS server behaviour question

I am noticing a problem on the sniffer trace that a 2003 windows CIFS server
immediately closes the TCP connection after it successfully returns
an Open file  ANDX response with a valid file handle (not the SMB message is
NTcreatex). The file exists and has no permission issues etc, just a regular
file open. Is there any reason why the server might do this?
