Well, but I think the problem isn't located in the locking of NFS files;
smbd daemons always get stalled doing a lock of "local" locking.tdb
file. Then, must be broken the ext3 locking? In any case, maybe it's
broken all locking system in linux kernel...

Regarding another subject, I cannot try those settings because now that
the information is 'local' to samba machine and not further mounted from
the NFS server, there haven't been any problems...
