  If it's limited to batch oplocks on non-.BAT files, you might
consider writing a very specific oplock-discarder just for that
  I'm assuming, of course, that only win95 makes this particular
error and that it will go away eventually. Alas, one former
employer tended to do just the opposite: publicize useful bugs
for general customer use (:-0)
