I filed a bug report about this exact issue yesterday.  Everything you
are describing aligns 100% with what I'm experiencing too.  I can use
the exact same smb.conf with 3.0.24 and it works fine.  The bug report
is at https://bugzilla.samba.org/show_bug.cgi?id=4673 (down for
maintenance as I type this).

Jeremy Allison requested that I generate some level 10 debug logs which
I have done, just waiting for bugzilla to come back online so I can
submit my logs.

Please keep an eye on the bug report and add anything you feel might be

Subject: [Samba] Difficulty w/Offline Files and Samba 3.0.25

Good morning,

I have a working Offline Files setup w/Samba 3.0.24 (FreeBSD 6.2 host
OS) and a Win XP SP2 client.  Upon updating to Samba 3.0.25, the XP
client's offline cache would show (as viewed via the Offline Files
Folder) that synced files are write-only ('User W' in the Access
column).  When offline, theses files appeared to be available via
Explorer and double clicking would launch the appropriate program, but
would then generate a file not found error.  Reverting to Samba 3.0.24
and resyncing has corrected the problem ('User R/W' in the Access column
and proper access restored when offline).

My smb.conf is attached.  Apart from the 'map acl inherit' parameter,
which I added when upgrading to 3.0.25 at the suggestion of
WHATSNEW.txt, this configuration file has not been changed in several
months.  Any suggestions as to what the cause of this problem could be?
Are any of the recent changes in 3.0.25a likely applicable to this

Thanks for the help!
