Strange time stamp behaviour

We're having this strange problem with Samba and I have not been able to
pinpoint the problem in any way. I'm hoping someone has come across a
similar problem and has a workaround or fix.
Some files opened on a Samba mounted volume from MS Developer Studio,
keep wanting to get reloaded.
For some reason, MS Dev Studio keeps thinking that a file it just opened
was subsequently modified. It tries to keep track of file changes
(notification or timestamp comparison?) but it gets confused by Samba
Reproducable on our systems: Launch MSDev. Open file on server. Wait
about 6 seconds. See MSDev dialog: "This file was modified outside the
server. Do you want to reload".
We're running Samba 1.9.18p1 on Solaris 2.6, mounted on NT sp3 machines.
One more interesting note. For a while we were running the 1.9.18p1
server with "share modes=no". We were having quite severe performance
problems, which went away after we set the share modes to yes. This is
when the time stamp problems started.
