   What version of Samba ? Is the client an NT box ?
   (The NT redirector seems to have some nasty race
   conditions within it - witness the really gross
   oplock hack that had to be put into 1.9.18p3 to
   get NT server to work.....).

Oops sorry i forgot that. Samba 1.9.18p4 and NT4 (service pack 3 i

Let me know if theres anything i can do to help try & find this.
