byte locking issues in samba have never really been
resolved.  Byte locking (or record locking) are important
for desktop database products such as paradox or other
products based on the BDE (Borland Database Engine).  The
BDE does things like locking a range of bytes which lie
beyond the end of the physical file, which I think is not
supported by Samba.  Is this true?  Or have others
successfully deployed multi-user paradox or other BDE
products connecting to a samba file server?

Any help or info much appreciated
