OpLocks were indeed causing corruption; we only turned
them off, made no other changes, and have no more
corruption, as I reported yesterday.  Wouldn't that be
a priority 1, "drop everything" bug?  Other experience
was confirmed by doing a Google, by 2 Samba authors,
and by the results of our one simple change.

If you'd like, I can submit an official bug report.
