I installed Samba 3.0.11, and the same problems are there.

I'm wondering if this could be what's going on: I try to delete a file and 
Samba deletes it, but returns a code Windoze doesn't understand; then Windoze 
tries to repeat the attempt to delete the file, but the second time it finds 
no file (because it actually was deleted on the first attempt), then Windoze  
reports that the file cannot be deleted because there is no file.

Would an etherreal capture log be of any help?
