On Linux, I'd connect from a test client, find the
right smbd process (using smbstatus and ps) and
run strace on it as you access the file.
Watching the trace should give you a hint as to what's
happening at a very low level. If you want to
go "lower", look at packet captures. If you want
to go "higher", set log level = 3 and use tail -f on
the smbd logs.

I haven't heard of the program, so I can't suggest
a good replacement (;-))
