[Samba] Quickbooks files can't be shared w/ 3.0.11

I had intermittent issues with QuickBooks on a Samba share until I 
disabled oplocks in Windows as well as in Samba.  I used the 
actdiag.exe utility (comes with ACT!) but Microsoft has a KB article on 
how to modify the Windows registry manually to do this:

My setup is SuSE 9.2 Pro running Samba 3.0.9.  Windows is Windows 2000 
SP4 running in VMware on the SuSE 9.2 machine.  QuickBooks is my only 
regularly used Windows application.

In smb.conf, I have for the share where the QuickBooks files are:

	comment = QuickBooks Data Folder
	path = /home/smbuser/qbdata/
	writeable = yes
	force user = smbuser
	force group = users
	inherit permissions = yes
	browseable = yes
	oplocks = no
	level2 oplocks = no

Hope that helps...

Best regards,
