I've a strange problem, when a user create a xls file on the server, he can 
save without any problem. But when he re-open and change the file and save it, 
windows tell : 'the file as been saved, but it cannot re-open due to a sharing 

On the Linux file server, the permission for this file are not good (
after the second step : re-open, make a change and save): -r--rwx--- (and 
before -rw-rwx---)

I've called the Microsoft support to obtain the q328170 patch referenced on 
Microsoft site : http://support.microsoft.com/?id=328170
I've applied this patch but the problem still occur.

On the samba side, I've disable all thing in relation with oplocks but the 
still occur.

Is any body already expiremented the same problem ?

Thank you for your help !
