Well, it turns out that the smbstatus/Access
column/0x3 condition is not the cause of the problem. 
(I still don't understand the significance of that

A simple upgrade from 3.0.5 to 3.0.8 broke file
sharing on a MSAccess 2k database (Win2k and WinXP
clients.)  There are Paradox databases on the same
file-share that are working fine.  The log files show
no errors.  I'm about to try increasing the debug
level, but can anyone give me a clue in the meantime?
