I run samba, version 3.0.21b   for data exchange between windows in vmware and
the linux host (gentoo).

>  Samba was compiled without: -acl -async -automount -cups -doc -examples

From time to I can't access my local samba share in 
the virtual machine anymore, usually this happends after having 
suspended/hibernated the system.

I noticed when browsing the samba share from within linux with th konqueror 
there is a strange file (only visibible within samba), with the name: 

It seems to be binary, don't know whether it contains sensible information so 
here is some readable text from the file
 When I delete this file and restart vmware player I can access my share
again.  Where does this file come from? Is this a lock file from samba? 

Any help appreciated.
