If this is an artifact of the way Windows/UNIX differ in file deletion, then
many people would have this problem and the samba team should have noticed
By the way, my samba server is being used by a group of people, I can't tell
everybody to ignore it for now. This error keeps creating confusion among
users, can any expert here suggest some helpful way to solve this?
