Anyone seen this error before?  This occurs when you use the Windows
Explorer on a win2k workstation to double-click or right click > OPEN to
open an Excel spreadsheet.

"Windows was unable to save all the data for the file
\Device\LanmanRedirector\IP.ADD.RE.SS\username\dir\dir with spaces\dir\excel
file with spaces.xls  The data has been lost.  This error may be caused by a
failure of your computer hardware or network connection.  Please try to save
this file elsewhere."

Details:  Samba 2.0.7 on an HP server running HP-UX 11.0.  The workstation
is running win2k.
