Using samba-3.0.10(*) on RedHat Enterprise 3, and client WinXP boxes
with Office 2003. All servers and clients have synchronized clocks (ntp).
I open an excel file from a samba share, modify it, the *first* (and
only first) time I save, Excel says:
The file 'foo.xls' may have been changed by another user since you last
saved it. In that case, what do you want:
O Save a copy
O Overwrite changes
Any ideas what's going on here?
(*) It happened with older version(s) too, but I thought I'd verify
against the latest release
