You may need to disable oplocks for certain data files. I have a  
setup that uses access files as a back-end database (sadly, I'm  
serious here - and no it's definitely not my creation), and we needed  
to veto the oplocks on those files to ensure usability.

Check out the veto oplocks configuration option for samba.
