I remember that there are oplock issues together with FoxPro. Try to
disable all the oplock parameters in smb.conf by setting them to false,

In man smb.conf you should especially look at the parameter called
"dos filetime resolution" this might be applicable to your problem.

This sounds like an oplock problem to me and I remember that there are
oplock issues together with FoxPro. Try to disable all the oplock
parameters in smb.conf by setting them to false, i.e.
(G) kernel oplocks = no
(S) level2 oplocks = no
(S) oplocks = no
The (G) and (S) stand for the global or per share section in smb.conf
If this solves your problem you can slowly enable oplocks again, using
veto oplock files
Advanced stuff are
oplock break wait time
oplock contention limit
but for these you should consider the warnings in man smb.conf.
