I think I remember getting this before, it went away as soon as I used
one of the shares on the machine. I think the problem was that it tried
to open the lock DB file, and when it didn't exist smbstatus just gave
an error instead of assuming that there weren't any locks. Using the
share created the file, and once it existed smbstatus never complained
