Problems with corrupt Outlook files

I had written in recently about having aproblem with Outlook *.pst files getting corrupted
when they are accessed on the samba server.

I believe I have the problem resolved.

The samba server was running on a Solaris 2.5.0 server and did not have the NFS patches
installed.  The files would get corrupted whenever heavy writes to the *.pst files would
take place.

I have migrated things over to a new linux server and so far so good.
