Hi list,

recently upgraded from 3.0.10 to 3.0.21a on debian sarge. Congratulations guy 
's many problems gone but ..........

a) a couple of users reported the following: If they open outlook for the 
first time they are not able to send/receive emails. If they close/open 
oulook the second time everything is fine. I 'd set a high debug level and 
observed the log but nothing that will point to a problem here. Maybe 
corrupted pst ?

b) if i do a smbstatus -u i get the following output for example:

17244  DENY_WRITE 0x2019f     RDWR       NONE             Mail/Outlook.pst   
Fri Jan 20 10:34:53 2006
17244  DENY_NONE  0x20089     RDONLY     NONE             Mail/Outlook.pst   
Fri Jan 20 12:31:10 2006
28885  DENY_WRITE 0x2019f     RDWR       NONE             Mail/2005.pst   Fri 
Jan 20 13:23:22 2006
28885  DENY_NONE  0x20089     RDONLY     NONE             Mail/2005.pst   Fri 
Jan 20 13:23:36 2006
18249  DENY_WRITE 0x2019f     RDWR       NONE             Mail/bis2002.pst

18249  DENY_NONE  0x20089     RDONLY     NONE             Mail/bis2002.pst

Every file gets opened twice. Once RW and RO ! Is this because of the rewrite 
that belongs to oplocks ?

Also the output of smbstatus doesn 't show the full path anymore. For example:

Mail/bis2002.pst should give /mnt/home/xxxxxMail/bis2002.pst !

Would be great if someone can give me a bit advice what 's going on here

Regards Tom
