    Can you read from a file that is currently being written to in an Samba environment?
  I tried it on a Buffalo Terastation and a Windows NT File server and got the message "file in use" every time.
  Imagine recording a TV show from 8pm to 9pm onto an Samba server.  If I come home at 8:15, can I start watching it immediately, or do I have to wait until 9:00?
