[Samba] OS X Finder - Zero KB Available, Write Problems, Uggh

On all of our Mac OS X (Samba) clients (10.3, 10.4) I have been experiencing the
following problem: users would not be able to write to a published Samba
shares UNLESS tha Global parameter "Max Disk Size = xxxxxx" is set
in the Samba server's config file. I first discovered this issue while
setting up a Linux server (using the 2.4 kernel and version 3.0 of Samba) last year.
Without setting this, the Macs are not able to write to it since the
share advertises that 0 KB is left on the disk. Setting the parameter
value to anything short of 1TB fixes the problem, but I cannot set it to
anything larger than a single TB as the same problem will return.
Some tests I had ran months ago showed that with smbclient, I did not see these same problems...
Additionally, I recently brought a OS X Server machine on line for a
client (using the default Apple settings) and things were going like
gangbusters, for a while, then the same problem appeared on the OS X
clients. I added the global parameter listed above and it "sort of" fixed
the problem - users can write now but do not see correct disk size and
space availability (because of the single TB parameter limitation).
Does anyone on this list have any thoughts about this?
Thank you in advance.
