Can you please tell me in which samba version this problem was fixed ? 
I am using 3.0.32 and facing the same problem on the NSS file system. (bug #5841).  

Probably with the change I would be able to see the error in the windows machine. 

Thanks and regards, 
Har Gagan Sahai

You probably need a recent Samba version, with XP SP2
Windows changed the way to delete a file. Probably you're
seeing the "Access Denied" on the close request, Windows
ignores it there. Recent Samba gives the error message on
the open call preceding that.
