Someone has the test.exe source files?
I wish to turn oplocks on in a samba server with a LOT of concurrent 
edited foxpro files. The server corrupt the files if oplocks are turned 
on and I wish to make tests to tuning parameters or to find a testcase 
to report.

Without oplocks the perfomace are *bad* and I've pressure to replace the 
smb box for a w2k box.
