[Samba] folder contents on Win2k SP4 clients become outdated

We have two problems with Win2k SP4 clients accessing our Samba file

1. Sometimes the contents of a folder on a Samba share become outdated until the
folder contents are manually refreshed by pressing F5 in Windows Explorer.  From
what I have read, this can be caused by missing or incorrect File Change

2. Sometimes Windows Explorer shows duplicates of a folder on a Samba share. 
The duplicate folder disappears after the folder contents are manually refreshed.

These two problems happen when the Samba share is mapped to a network drive;  I
do not know whether they happen when accessing the Samba share via its UNC path
instead of a mapped network drive.

Any ideas?
