[Samba] Windows 2000 Terminal Server and Samba

We had installed Samba 2.2.3a, but ran out of file locks within an hour.
Appearently Samba 2.2.3 needs lots more file locks than 2.0.7. Now we are
monitoring the server to determine the maximum number of file locks during
the day. Later we modify the kernel parameter "nflocks" to a correct value.

combination with Samba. That this combination gives problems is very clear
to me. I think this is a pitty; we almost were thinking of geting rid of
Samba and implement a Windows 2000 File server ...
