Solved I think :) Anyway, just wanted to give other people with the same
problem something to find in google, as I myself could not find anything.

I changed that to 8 seconds in the source, recompiled and tried again. No
chance. In the log file I got an 8 second timeout but word/excel still hung
for 30 seconds and more.
Also not all types of documents exhibited the problem. With normal word
documents I was not really able to reproduce the problem but as soon as you
imported data from an excel sheet into the word document for making a form
letter (I think it's called form letter in english versions :)) we started
getting the hangs.
As noted in my original post, nothing oplock related really worked. However if
you set blocking locks = no the problem seemed to go away. We were not able
to reproduce the problem and the users have not got any timeouts today
