[Samba] Trouble transferring a large file (700MBs)

Hi all,
Have been using samba with all my Windows XP professional clients for
sometime now.  All have been worked well until a problem has recently

I was not able to send a large file over the network to my linux server
(running samba).  The file is an around 700MBs XviD file (size is fairly
below 2GB).  My samba log returns errors below:

smbd[7389]: [2003/03/11 03:03:36, 0] smbd/oplock.c:oplock_break(790) 
smbd[7389]:   oplock_break: end of file from client 
smbd[7389]:   oplock_break failed for file file.avi (dev = 1601, inode =
28097, file_id = 486). 
smbd[7389]: [2003/03/11 03:03:36, 0] smbd/oplock.c:oplock_break(878)

There is no problem transferring small sized files to the samba mount
drives.  A strange thing is that transferring that file works when
destination is home directory (e.g. /home/user, if logged in samba with
username, user).  Other mount points, it will not work (no matter
filesystem type, fat32 partition, linux partition...etc).  Haven't had
any other files at that size to test but is it possible it's something
to do with the file format?

Any help would be very much appreciated.
Thanks a lot!
