[Samba] Lock file problems? smb_open and smb_readpage_sync issues

I have a samba 2.2.3a server running on Red Hat 7.2

There are several normal shares that are ok.

I have one share on the samba box that is actually smbmounted from a Win2K
machine. This share seems to be giving me lots of errors. It seems to work
fine though. On at least one instance the smb processes crashed, so I would
like to get this resolved.

The errors are:
My 13 11:43:50 localhost kernel: smb_open: ffdata/FF2000domain.db open
failed, result=-26
My 13 11:43:50 localhost kernel: smb_readpage_sync: ffdata/FF2000domain.db
open failed, result=-26

FF2000 is the directory on which the Win2k share has been mounted. domain is
the name of the domain.

I think that samba is trying to create normal locks on this file and is
failing. Should I just turn locks off on this share?

Is there a better way to do this?
