I have been running Vista since the early betas and have noticed 
intermittent problems with Samba (mostly with deleting dirs on samba 
shares), but they are not reproducible.  Vista implements some pretty 
extensive security features.  I would not be suprised if there is a 
relation between the setting of these security features and Samba issues.

I did quite alot of trouble shooting when I ran into the delete dir 
issue and had an extensive conversation in the Samba bug tracker with 
other users about the issue.  Everything pointed back to Vista.

Given that Vista is hitting the steets tomorrow, seems it would be best 
to see what the masses produce.
