My friend you are the man. If ever in Phoenix I owe you a beer. 
Do you know of any ramifications of altering this? As long as only one
person accesses the file at a time I should be OK I would think. The
smb.conf man page says that smbd keeps it's own locks and tries to match
these to posix locks for files opened by local or nfs access. At least I
understand it that way. I think I should be ok as these files will only
be accessed from these samba sessions.

Thank you again
