All -
	I'm having an unusual problem with MS PhotoDraw opening and
saving files to my Samba server.  When I open the file, all's fine.
When I try to save the file, I get an error message that says "Unable to
save the file.  <Filename> could not be found."  At this point I have to
navigate to the directory where the file was and save it.  However, when
watching WinExplorer while doing this process, the file actually
"disappears" when I hit the save button the first time and get this
error.  Upon navigating to the directory, there is no file to save over.
This appears to happen only with MS PhotoDraw files.  I have level 10
debug logs if anyone is interested, here are the rest of the pertinent

Samba 3.0.0-2

# Global parameters
        workgroup = SCHEMMER
        server string = Project File Server
        security = domain
        password server = quicksilver.schemmer.com,
        log file = /var/log/samba/log.%m
        max log size = 50
#       debug level = 10
        socket options = TCP_NODELAY SO_RCVBUF=8192 SO_SNDBUF=8192
        wins server =
        preferred master = No
        dns proxy = No
        ldap ssl = no
        idmap uid = 10000-20000
        idmap gid = 10000-20000
        template shell = /bin/bash
        winbind use default domain = Yes
        oplocks = False
        level2 oplocks = False

        comment = All Proposal Files
        path = /shares/mktg
        read only = No
        create mask = 0777
        directory mask = 0777

Thanks for the help!
