Oh yes!

I read this option in smb docs. Looks great. But in my case, since I 
have users yet only working on M$ Office standard, to put a veto for 
oplocks on .doc and .xls files equals disable oplocks :-))

Other question: is "veto oplock files" really case sensitive?
Couldn't you put some regexp here? SMB dev=> Is this supported?

Yeah, I know, wouldn't be much of use :-) there must be a lot of urgent 
things to do :-)

Thanks Jim anyway.
