[Samba] McAfee 8 incompatible with Samba

I've parsed a whole year's worth of postings in this group
and didn't find any previous reference to the problem.

Since I've updated McAfee to version 8 many applications
which open file chooser dialogs report "Access denied"
when trying to open a Samba share, including the users's
own home directory.

At installation one can choose to exclude some apps from
the shield, e.g. Lotus Notes, but if I have to exclude
MS Internet Explorer, which is the app for many web apps,
then the very purpose of a virus shield is defeated.

Is there some better way to configure such problems out?
