[Samba] Stale file locks

Hi all,

I've had just a couple instances so far where a user has closed a file, but 
fuser still reports it open, and when I look at the pid it reports, it's a 
smbd process.  If I kill the process, other users can open the file.  Is 
there a way that I can debug why this is happening?  Samba 3.0.9 with ext3 
filesystem underlying.  Thanks for any ideas, as this is one of those things 
that just makes Samba look less robust than I know it actually is.
