Microsoft Office file open/save problem

I'm using samba 2.2.1a on Solaris 8 (E4500) with NT4.0 clients.
Has anyone seen a problem when opening or saving documents using Microsoft
office?  It seems that there is a 10-15 second pause before office lets you
edit the document when it is opened from the Samba server.  There is a
similar delay when saving files using office.  Copying or editing files with
any other utility works fine, no delay.  The files are all relatively small
and the network is fast and reliable.
Could this be a locking problem or related to Office temp files?  Is there a
fix or configuration change that might fix this?
Thank you,
Tony Cetera
