yes, it does appear to be random. I have captured it happening to me
once and I am pretty sure it is a client bug but what I'd really like
get is a _reliable_ way of reproducing it. The only time I've seen it
a client reboot "fixed" the problem. 

It is possible that it is a server bug, perhaps causing the client to
get some internal state confused. Certainly Samba appears to be
handling the oplocks correctly from the sniffs I've seen, but it's
quite possible that the oplocks are the symptom not the cause. 

Anyway, I'd love a reliable way to reproduce the problem, so if anyone
finds one then let me know!

Cheers, Tridge
