How long does samba buffer open files ?

we have a strange thing happen.

Even after the user has closed his application ( in this case Excel ),
the file remains open on the samba server.

lsof shows me the file is open and smbstatus too, but the app IS closed.

When does smbd release the files ?



P.S. If possible mail me the answer
