2.2.3a or 2.2.1a? What kernel version? I switched to ext2 and haven't
noticed any problems *so far*. Perhaps the problem occurs when
kjournald and samba try to flush at the same time, under high load (?).

I don't know if this helps but I'm running RH7.2 on ext3 with Samba
Quotas, I haven't heard any users complain yet, (300 total users). I
believe any of them are using Outlook though, but they are using the
their Groupwise MailArchive. Hope this helps...
