Record locks from linux clients

We're running a server with Samba2.2.1a on RH7.1, kernel 2.4.2, with linux
clients of the same configuration, and also some win98.

Record locking works fine for the win98 clients, but not for the linux

I have run ethereal to try to see what's happening.
The win98 clients send an SMBLock request and the server responds with an
SMBLock reply, however this doesn't occur for Linux clients.
Is SMBLock supported for Linux clients ?
