See the "lock spin count" and "lock spin time" parameters
in smb.conf(5).

Apparently NT does not reply with a failure if a lock
cannot immediately be granted by waits slightly and tries
again.  Jeremy found this thanks to a test *.exe
that someone (can't remember who) submitted to reproduce the
bug.  The bug was reproduce with FoxPro IIRC.
