I am having (weird) issues with XFS, in that open(...) on certain files 
takes 45 seconds to return. After the file has been opened, the next 
file in the same directory takes 45 seconds. If the file was recently 
opened it returns immediately.

I have raised this on several mailing lists, see:


So far it would appear to be Samba is not releasing the oplock when 
another process tries to break it.

I am not entirely convinced this is Samba's fault:


However, somebody suggested I contact Samba people just in case.

Any ideas?
