Please Help--Problem with Samba 2.2.2 and File Locking

Hello All,

We just upgraded our Samba Server from 2.10 to 2.2.2 and we have
uncovered what we think is a file locking problem.

The office in question has 5 workstations all running W2K SP2 with a
server running RedHat 7.1 using Samba 2.2.2 as a Primary Domain
Controller. On the Samba Server we have our Quickbooks data file located
in one of the shares. This Quicken Program allows us to run in
Multi-User Mode, so we could conceivably have three users accessing the
same file at the same time.

When we were using Samba 2.10 we had no problems with this setup and
everything worked as it should. However, now, since the upgrade, when
one user access the file, the others get an error message that states
"Could not access the image. Perhaps you do not have sufficient
permissions to do so."

Does anyone have any idea what is wrong here and what we need to do to
correct this. I am enclosing our smb.conf file for your review.
