Coincidently, we have recently had a very similar problem also running 
on Digital Unix (with 1.9.18p7).  We also have a very simple smb.conf.  

In our case, Samba sometimes fails to transfer a very large file 
(several 100Mb, being used as part of routine NT workstation building 
using GHOST).  Usually it has worked fine, but has failed just a couple 
of times.  The following was trapped in the log file after one failure:

1998/08/07 12:52:54 request_oplock_break: no response received to oplock break r
equest to pid 25956 on port 3755 for dev = 805402, inode = a2504
This sounds similar to Lucian's error, and I wonder is it Digital Unix
