[Samba] Cannot share MSAccess DB after upgrade 3.0.5 to 3.0.8

This is really strange.

The samba server in question is a domain member server
on a Windows NT 4.0 Domain network.  It runs Gentoo
2004.3 with a 2.4.24 kernel.

The Gentoo server was upgraded from Samba 3.0.5 to
3.0.8 last night.  After the upgrade, the server had
to be re-joined to the domain.  After that, everything
appeared to be working.

This morning we found that the MSAccess database files
can no longer be shared if the database users open the
MDB file containing the tables.  The first user in can
use the database, and databases that are externally
linked to the database in question can share the data
just fine. (Weirdness)

A quick look at smbstatus output reveals that no
oplocks are placed on the MDB or the LDB files. 
However, the "Access" column of the smbstatus output
shows 0x2019f for all files except the MDB files,
which show 0x3.  Does anyone know what this means?

32748 DENY_NONE 0x3     RDWR NONE
32748 DENY_NONE 0x2019f RDWR NONE
