[Mitch says:] ok - and that's evidence that I need more sleep...

The CORRECT statement is:
 veto oplock files = /*.QBW/*.QBI/

It works ok. Can someone confirm something for me? This doesn't prevent
LOCKING - right? Just opportunistic locking? Seeing the files sitting there
looking unlocked makes me nervous - seems to work though.

>From seeing some other notes, adding /*.mdb/ might be a good idea too.

Performance ponderance - is it better to say MDB or mdb?

The files seem to be named MDB / QBW - not sure if the real file is lower
cased for comparison, or if both sides are uppercased as nessecary (in which
case I save a step using the uppercase form....

thanks for the help!!!
