Well, not re-exporting in this case is not an option.  The NFS server is a
source control system, with a database file repository, to which sym links
are made from the user's home directory on the Linux client.

The "posix locking = no" option seems to have done the trick.  Also, I found
that creating the NFS mount with the "nolock" option also accomplished that
same thing.

Thanks, Volker.

Just DON'T re-export NFS imports with Samba. See a thread a
couple of weeks ago.

If you are really desperate, try "posix locking = no" and
"kernel oplocks = no".
