You mentioned:
| The Samba log files showed multiple errors such as:-
| check_file_sharing: NT redirector workaround - rename attempted on
| oplocked file docs/some filename.doc, dev = 8000f3, inode = cfbe4

  Sounds like Word or Outlook was taking a batch oplock on a non-.BAT
file... unless outlook was using batch to do something complicated.

  Methinks we're seeing experienced MS developers depending on an
undocumented feature in the MS oplock implementation...
