sometimes a ms-office file (ms word 2k, ms excel 2k) will be destroyed,
when the client writes it to the server. The strange thing is, that samba
writes parts of its log-files at the top and bottom of the file. Here are
the first 2 lines of the destroyed file:

[2002/09/04 17:03:05, 2] smbd/open.c:open_file(216)
  tb opened file xxx/xx/xx/xxxx/xx xx/filename_TB.doc read=Yes write=Yes

at the bottom samba writes a few times this:

[2002/09/04 17:03:28, 2] smbd/open.c:open_file(216)
<path and filename>
[2002/09/04 17:03:28, 2] smbd/close.c:close_normal_file(212)
<path and filename>

Does anybody know this problem or is it fixed in 2.2.5 ?
