Hi Jeremy,

Please see bugzilla bug 190298 at bugzilla.redhat.com.  Dave Jones comment
is below.

"if this is the case, the samba developers (who know a lot more about what's
going on with this issue than I do) should bring this up upstream, as the
kernel has no changes in this area to the best of my knowledge, and this
is far
more likely to get this resolved quicker."

In the meantime, I have put in kernel oplocks = no in all our samba
servers and this has circumvented the hangs.  Besides Mavis typing, we
have also run into this problem with another lab package and kernel
oplocks = no has also circumvented the hang for this other package.
