  You just got caught by cleint-side caching.
  If you regularly update files from the Unix side, do one of
two things:
	use smbsh (requires recompiling --with-smbwrappers)
	turn of oplocks on the share/veto oplocks on the files
  Oplocks are locks used to allow the clients to cache files
and directories locally, if no-one else is using them. Unix
(other then SGI Irix!) don't support them.
