WIN98 question?

We are running version 1.9.18p1 on a Dec alpha and have been experiencing 
some problems with applications running on some newly installed WIN98 
machines. There appears to have been a change to WIN98 from WIN95 and WIN 
NT 4.0 where files are left open after an application has been shutdown. 
The files remain open until the drive is unmapped from the PC.

Setting the "oplocks" option to be false helps with the open files problem; 
files are closed when I feel they should be. My problem now is with corrupt 
files. One application, Visual SourceSafe, complains about corrupt files 
after a check-in every once in a while.

Does anyone have any info that may help?
