[Samba] QuarkXPress files

Is this on a MAC or PC?  
We've had the same problems with Quark on the MACs.  We have found this to be independent of the network type (ie. Novell, Samba, or Windows).  If the user opens the file across the network, the file will usually become corrupt and they will not be able to save.  However, if the user copies the file to their local hard drive first, then works on the files and saves to their local hard drive.  They can then successfully copy the file back to the network with no problem.  Under Samba, the copies times were significantly faster (on order of 5x) than on Novell (MACs are really slow on NetWare).  We have determined this to be a Quark issue and are hoping Quark 6 on OS X will significantly improve the situation.  We are also looking at Adobe InDesign as an alternative.
