Just thought it would be worth making sure list subscribers were aware 
that the locking problem that has been experienced by various people 
using Autocad R14 and Samba has been (fingers crossed) cured with Samba 

(Briefly, Autocad was informing users that the drawings were read only 
when in fact the UNIX permissions were totally correct)

We've upgraded a production server here recently, and all locking 
problems have dissapeared.

Many thanks to the Samba team and John Terpstra for fixing the problem 
and keeping in touch!
