There have been no SAMBA 2.8 releases that I have been aware of.

There have been many SAMBA 2.2.8 releases for OpenVMS, and the date code 
that goes with them can be very significant in diagnosing problems.  If 
your copy of SAMBA 2.2.8 does not have a date code in the name of the 
distribution kit, it is very ancient.

The file locking/sharing behavior has been one of the changes.

Please make sure that you have the latest one from:
