[Samba] ok, so oplocks: good or bad?

I have been searching for info on this and haven't found an
authoritative answer. From what I have read, oplocks are good because
they increase connection speeds, but they are bad because they don't
really work, but they actually do work, but they only work in some
cases, etc etc.

so, here's my problem and my question together: I get tons of these
messages every day (over a thousand a day)

[2003/06/20 08:19:42, 0] smbd/oplock.c:request_oplock_break(1011)
  request_oplock_break: no response received to oplock break request to pid 22335 on port 35010 for dev = 2b00, inode = 688540, file_id = 256210
[2003/06/20 08:19:42, 0] smbd/open.c:open_mode_check(652)
  open_mode_check: exlusive oplock left by process 22335 after break ! For file
UHG/Local Settings/Temporary Internet Files/Content.IE5/desktop.ini, dev = 2b00, inode = 688540. Deleting it to continue...

is this an indication that I should disable oplocks, or is disabling
oplocks a foolish, unsafe thing to do, or is there just some other
problem I need to fix to allow me to keep using oplocks?

Very confused.
