Hahahaha... I have also been experiencing this too.

Break open a DOS Prompt, try to copy a file from the SAMBA server to the
local machine. it always asks if you wanna overwrite the file.

The file didna exist before the copy, but completely loops through a
transfer. If you hit ALL (Yes, No, All) your network falls overs.

Nice one Jeremy!

Oh, BTW any DB you try to open never does either.
