IMHO, this is a real good reason to disable oplocks.
I don't believe that in a production environment one could take such a
risk. I personaly had Excel files corrupted. Had to take it back from
backup sets. I really had to find good BOFH excuses for my users :-/
Editing the corrupted .xls file, I found that Samba loggued kind of
samba log output in it instead putting it to /var/log/log.smbd :-)
Search for my mail on bug 26128 in this list for example and/or more info.
I really think oplocks could be is real good thing if there were no such
risks using it :-)
