2.0.xx I hope this is a typo and 3.0.xx is meant?

I need to agree (to a certain degree) to L.P.H. van Belles mail. I
tested it with a current WinXP SP3 and all other security Patches with a
fairly old Samba (3.0.14a, Debian sarge, oldstable, will be upgraded in
the maybe not so near future though *g*) with some via samba shared nfs
exports. But here are symbolic links used to link to the files on the
/mnt/nfs #the mounted nfs export
/pub/samba #the samba share
/pub/samba/old_data #a symbolic link
/mnt/nfs/data #the target of the link above
So after all this may be the difference AND a workaround for Dirks
problem. I did check the samba configuration, posix locking is not set,
default is used (maybe the default changed?).
