[Samba] Dreaded ERROR 5 In Robocopy

I'm still battling the dreaded "ERROR 5 (0x00000005)" error when trying to
robocopy files from a W2K box to Samba 3.0.7 on FreeBSD.
I've been fighting this since Samba 2.2.8 and the upgrade hasn't fixed it
for me despite the entries in the changlelog.
Now here's the strange part. If robocopy is sending NEW files, files which
are on W2K but not on the Samba box, the copy proceeds just fine. If
robocopy is trying to replace an older file on Samba with a newer file from
W2K, it will copy the file and bail at 97% with the ERROR 5 message.
To make matters worse, if I map a drive from the W2K box to the Samba server
using the same user name the robocopy is running as, new files work, deletes
work, and overwrites work. That leads me to believe it's not a
directory/file permissions issue.
At this point I'm way stumped.
Here's the share config:
comment = Internet Storage
path = /home/www/wwwroot
public = yes
writeable = yes
printable = no
force group = developers
directory mode = 0775
create mode = 0664
valid users = +developers automated
default case = lower
preserve case = no
