[Samba] Opening files issue.

Other than IPTOS_LOWDELAY, that's pretty much what I have.  I did veto
oplocks Access MDB files on all shares, but that was it.  I'm just confused
as to the difference in behavior between opening via Windows Explorer and
opening via the Open dialogue.

I've the following setting in my smb.conf:

        socket options = TCP_NODELAY IPTOS_LOWDELAY SO_SNDBUF=8192
        locking = 1
        kernel oplocks = yes
        blocking locks = yes
        oplocks = yes
        level2 oplocks = yes

And it works wonderful for me...
