This is an MS Access configuration issue.  I have a large customer who has no 
problems with an MS Access application that resides on a Samba 3.2.3 server.

Is it possible that you have changed the path (URI path) for the MDB file?  If 
so,  you need to get into MS Access to reset the multi-user access settings.

The large site has up to 400 users accessing a single folder (directory) 
without any problems.
