> What version of Samba. What clients ? What are the symptoms ?

Various versions, including the latest stable release as of this moment.
Win2k on the clients. Symptoms are long delays when opening Word/Excel
documents; along with (sometimes) error messages about file permissions
after the delay is over.

As far as I can tell I'm experiencing a known issue (I've seen people
talk about this in various mailinglist archives). I'm just wondering
what dangerous side effects changing the oplock break wait time
parameter might have - it's supposedly a possible fix. But the man page
makes it sound pretty dangerous to fiddle with that particular option,
so I am hesitant to try it.
