Is it completely reproducible ? Problems cuased by clients
not responding to oplock breaks are notoriously dependent
on network hardware and client issues (network drivers etc).

We drive the client differently than a Windows TCP stack,
and remember Microsoft don't test with anything than their
own stack.

Problems like this come under the "oplock break" problems,
not generic corruption.
