i've done some more testing and have been able to nail down, when it
user a opens file test.xls, modifies it, but doesn't save it yet.
user b opens it, closes it
user a can't save any changes anymore! excel times out, renames the
file to an arbitrary name and will not permit any further save attempts
of the file.
i have repeated this five times and it happened every time.
i have created a fresh log-directory for samba, turned the log-level up
to 10, restarted samba and then repeated the above steps. i've taken
the liberty to upload a .tgz of both clients log files, the smbd.log,
as well as my smb.conf to the following URL:
in the logs user a is machine burroughs with IP 192.168.0.23 and b is
goedel with IP 192.168.0.177

the permissions for the file in question are:
root at knox# ll /home/shared/SambaTest/
-rwxrw-r-- 1 tomster house 82 Oct 18 18:26 ._FA7E5000
-rwxrw-r-- 1 tomster house 82 Oct 17 20:36 ._test.xls
-rwxrw-r-- 1 tomster house 82 Oct 18 18:19 ._test2.xls
-rwxrw-r-- 1 tomster house 82 Oct 18 18:21 ._test3.xls
-rwxrw-r-- 1 tomster house 82 Oct 18 18:24 ._test4.xls
-rwxrw-r-- 1 tomster house 24064 Oct 18 18:50 FA7E5000
(this is after excels renaming-funk...)
clients are both mac osx (build 7B85 aka Panther Golden Master), using
the latest version of Office v. X (10.1.5) the server is running
freebsd 5.1p10 with samba 3.0.0 and your patch applied.
the behaviour has been the same with 10.2.8 clients (to which i haven't
got acces right now)
currently I'm also not able to provide any testing with a Windows
Client, but i can do that tomorrow or on monday.
thank you for any feedback. I'm sort of getting desparate here... :-(
there's twelve people who will have a busy day on monday and will be
opening, closing and saving A LOT of excel files...
kind regards from berlin,
