I have just found that my understanding of the problem was in error.

They were modifying the file on the unix side "behind Samba's back" so of 
course the caching was a problem. I'm not sure why it didn't show up in XP 
systems though.

I have since enabled fam and the problem appears solved.

Sorry for the noise, and thanks for the help!
