Thanks! Had not thought of using smbstatus. 

What is happening is that the Ubuntu clients are establishing a lock of

deny_none, and the WinXP client is establishing deny_write. 

I have tried changing oplocks and kernel oplocks to yes, and all else to

the defaults shown here, but there is no change in this behavior:

What else should I try, please?
