[Samba] Strange problems with samba-3.0.7-5

Hello Group.

I experience strange problems with samba-3.0.7-5 running on SuSE 
Linux 9.2. Clients are windows 98 and windows 2000.

The clients can browse through the samba share without problems. But 
if a client tries to create or copy a file onto the share, windows 
says: "the file cannot be created, because it already exists" (in 
fact the file doesn't exist!). After this, an empty file (0 bytes) 
with the right name was created on the share.
Deletion of a file on the share leads to an error ("the file cannot 
be found"), but the file is deleted anyway.

In the log files I can see no hint about the problem.

I have never had such problems before with samba, and I have no idea 
where to look. Does anybody have a clue what this could be? Might 
this be a windows or a samba problem?
