What version of Samba are you using. What share
definition, what is in your smb.conf. What
backend are you writing onto.

Samba certainly does go via the VFS for
all writes, but it can be using VFS_RECVFILE,
VFS_PWRITE depending on configuration.

Give the list a bit more info and I will
hopefully be able to help more.
