to find out, where the problem lies, please try
"oplocks = no"
afterwards u can try
"dos filetime resolution = yes"
"dos filetimes = yes"

LanDevelopment Desktop seems to use more threads, and one does not know, 
what the other does. ('cause, there's running very much arx applications.)
did u look to the autodesk hompage too? (maybe thats an issue, which 
appears on w2k servers too...)

i don't think, that it's a permission problem, we're using AutoCAD, 
Architectual Desktop and Mechanical Desktop on Samba and on w2k servers 
without ( ;-) ) problems...
