	As other folks said, oplocks.
	One low-hassle way to ensure that "pc" files are
	always up to date is to pretend they're on a
	pc: run smbsh and edit the pathname "/smb/<serer name>/
	<share name>/<file name>.

	Smbsh provided a local virtual file system that
	acesses all the smb servers in your workgroup via
	the smb protocol, and causes oplocks to be treated
