Thank you Paul for your response. Perhaps I can give a bit more info:

RS/6000 H50 w/AIX 4.3.2 running Samba 2.0.5a
PIII-450 NT4sp4 w/128MB

I indicated yesterday that a race condition appeared to be happening. I later
remembered that I turned on level2 oplocks on two read only shares as the last
tunings we did before this began to happen. I got the info from the Speed.txt
document in hopes of increasing performance on our read only shares.

After turning this feature off, it appears the problem has gone away.

It should be noted that we were writing to one of the shares froma client with
level2 oplocks turned on. It was necessary to copy a section of the drive to
somewhere else. Could this have upset some delicate balance?

			     We are young

		    Wandering the face of the earth

		Wondering what our dreams might be worth

		   Learning that we're only immortal...
