[Samba] odd mac situation

This is somewhat off topic. I've not thought of a better place to ask
than here.

I have a user on a Macbook (Mac OS X 10.5, Leopard) with Microsoft Office
2008 for the mac and Parallels running an image of Microsoft Windows XP
Pro with Microsoft Office 2007. Inside Parallels and XP Pro the user can
open a spreadsheet shared from a Windows Server 2003 box, and yet the
user gets an error (read only, etc) when opening the same spreadsheet
shared from the same server on the pure mac side in Microsoft Office 2008.

Any idea what might be going on. The user is using a domain account from
a samba PDC (ha, there's the samba reference) and I find no entries in
the Event Viewer on the Windows 2003 server.
