I often do consulting for shops who have really old DOS apps (Clipper, 
Paradox...) and I want to be extra safe when suggesting migration from 
NT or NetWare to Linux/Samba.

Hey, now I had an idea: what about a log option that issues a warning 
when an client issues a read/write request colliding with some 
byte-range lock? That would be a great diagnosis tool.
