[Samba] kernel oplocks don't work on Linux/Alpha

I have a Compaq Alpha server with Linux 2.4.18 and samba 2.2.4 and NT-clients.

After accessing a file from a NT-client this file cannot be accessed on the Linux side for a while.

Creating the file on the server:
    echo test >file

on the NT-client (gives "test"):
    TYPE file

try to access it on the server:
    cat test
cat: file: Invalid argument

After waiting approx. 40 sec. it succeeds.

This problem does not occur with "kernel oplocks=no", but file contents are not consistent then.

The same configuration on an Intel server (2.4.16, samba 2.2.3a) works.
