[Samba] Obtaining log level 10 for just specified user(s)
(MS Word & Excel File Locking issue - still)

I can't address the Word problem, but have you looked at Excel itself as
the culprit for the Excel problem? For instance, is the user able to get
anything done on his/her Excel spreadsheet before this problem
occurs? There is a .xlb file (I don't remember its exact name; I'll have
to look it up when I go in to work tomorrow) that occasionally gets
corrupted. Deleting this file makes Excel work OK, again, and the file is
regenerated the next time the user opens Excel (and is
changed/updated/whatever MS feels like doing with this sort of file) every
time the user opens Excel.

Government programs provide enough to keep you alive, but they don't offer
any hope of living your dreams.
