Take a look at this output from lsof:
smbd    11490        0    8u   REG    3,3 55296 1136647 Maintenanc.fp5

This is showing a rtf file open in word on mac and windows, both writable.  I am
able to save on one while the other has the same file open.  The information
isn't transferring between samba and netatalk.  Locking works within samba and
within netatalk, meaning mac-mac locking conflicts are reported and smb-smb
locking conflicts are too.  But if you have the same file open in windows and
mac, there isn't any warning!

I've turned off oplocks, level 2 oplocks, kernel oplocks and turned on strict
locking.  Same difference.

This is a Debian 2.2 box running 2.2.17  I am attaching my netatalk and samba

Please help!

I'm getting corrupted files because of this. :(
