we have the problem that Microsoft Word 7.0 terminates with the
errormessage "unrecoverable diskerror". In some cases the document is
completley destroyed.
Because a lot of users are using Samba, I don't want to upgrade to the
1.9.17-Developer Version.
Does anybody have any helpful advice to avoid this.
