[Samba] QuarkXPress files

We did that test with a new PC W2K with XPress. Same error.

Then we shared a W2K directory for XPress-files. It works. All users can 
open/modify/save QuarkXPress files when they have according rights.

So, this problem with XPress seems to be a Samba issue.

What shell I do next? Do I have to write a "request for bug fix" to the 
samba team?

Thank you for your advice
