[Samba] oplock break

When trying to delete or copy over certain files on my Samba server, 
Windows hangs for some time and then gives "access denied". I can delete 
these files directly from the server, so it's a Samba or Windows problem. 
There seems to be nothing special about these files, other than that Samba 
doesn't like touching them. Upon checking the Samba logs, I find this 
message or similar repeating constantly:

[2002/06/10 20:47:22, 0] smbd/oplock.c:request_oplock_break(997)
   request_oplock_break: no response received to oplock break request to 
pid 3303 on port 1098 for
dev = 302, inode = 2528190
   for dev = 302, inode = 2528190, tv_sec = 3d048716, tv_usec = 19b20

Are these problems related? How can I fix them?
