I'm of the opinion that this could have bigger consequences than you
might guess. I would suggest it better to inform people about the
behavior and let them hit F5 when they feel the need.
I know this is a bit off topic, but I believe calling it a "bug" in
Samba is a bit disingenuous. If my suspicions are correct, I think it is
better to call it a bug in Windows that Samba would have to work around.
