I have yet to see a version of windows that can handle the "oplock" properly. It doesn't seem to even work right going from a windows work station to a windows server (one of the reasons I went from an NT server to Linux/Samba). I have always just turned off "oplocks" with "oplocks=no" in the "[global]" section of the "smb.conf". I'll be watching this thread to see if someone else has a better answer :-).
