OK, I have been reminded.

That connection / computer / etc... has flipped back to showing special account name in lsof AND I can write to the drive at this point. This box has still not logged off of the server... chugging 
away doing its process.

???? I will continue to watch and see if the account shown in lsof is an indication of the ability to write or not.

But then, I AM going to upgrade the Samba version after the process gets done, so then it is an all new ball game after that. ;-)
