I just tested this against a Samba mounted drive on W2K SP2 and on a
local drive on W2K SP2. Exporer behaved identially (ie. it refused to
remove the directory as the file is in use).

Unless you can show me a case where W2K allows this I think we've
incresed conformance with W2K on this point (ie, 2.0.x allowing it
was a bug).
