thanks Volker for your reply
nope, has no effect

and in log as before:

2012/04/27 11:16:00.597601, 10] 
   fetch_share_mode_unlocked: no share_mode record around 
(file not open)

and as before suffices, for 3.5.4-68.el6, to change 
ownership to be of the accessing user and

   parse_share_modes: delete_on_close: 0, owrt: Mon 30 May 
2011 12:45:56 AM BST BST, cwrt: Thu 01 Jan 1970 01:00:00 AM 
BST BST, tok: 0, num_share_modes: 1
[2012/04/27 11:19:32.098836, 10] 

it works, that is weir, no?
but unfortunately it's not exactly the solution for me, 
changing the owner every time...
