MS Powerpoint won't open files off smaba share

I have a slightly outdated (Version 4.0.0alpha21) samba installation
using the ntvfs server. This installation has trouble with MS Powerpoint
when opening files. Powerpoint apparently does some odd file
modification time manipulations that other apps don't do. This causes a
failure logged as: pvfs_setfileinfo: utimes() failed '/file/path/here' -
Operation not permitted
Does anyone on the list recall if this has been addressed in the enwer
versions (4.0.2 is current I think)? Should I perhaps switch to the smbd
file server instead or does it have similar issues?
Happy to supply more technical detail and do testing if required.
Have a Nice Day!
