The Samba 3.0.13 would be the first thing I would fix.  Samba 3.0.21 is
about to be released, and with oplock rewrites and other things since
3.0.13, it should provide a better basis for distributed filesystem

My guess is that the lack of posix locking is causing Word to fail, as
it uses a lot of locks.
