High oplock break fail count

Hi all,

we've just recently switched to a new file server upgrading to samba 2.0.3.
Unfortunately I've noticed that a couple of times a day a smbd process dies
with 'oplock break failed' so I actually had to turn off oplocks thus
degrading performance drastically. Does anybody have any idea why oplock
breaks are failing so often now?
