Well, in fact, the client is just accessing the files (open, modify, save)
at the rate of the user.

Opening the files is ok (not too slow) but saving them can take up to 10
seconds for just a small file...

This does not happen when the files are opened with wordpad/notepad/write
so it must be something to do with Visual C++...

I would like to speed things a bit, otherwise developpement on Samba drives
is just not possible !
