Hi Jeremy,

Last night I updated to Version 3.0.22-1.fc5.  Kernel is 2.6.15-1.2054_FC5.
I reenabled oplocks on the mavis share and when the class tried to execute
the Mavis typing program, it again locked up.

Based on Leonid Zeitlin's note in a similar thread, I then disabled kernel
oplocks and had the class try again.  They were all able to get in with no
oplock errors on the log.

The only software accessing these files is samba so I question whether it
is a kernel problem.  Also, with kernel oplocks = no, the oplocks on
logon.bat have disappeared.
