[Samba] ms office and 3.3.1

I upgraded from 3.2.7 to 3.3.1 and am having the most peculiar problem
with Microsoft Office 2007 and samba shares. Users can open a share,
create, edit and delete files/folders with no problem. But when a user
opens a file on a samba share in any Office application, for example
Word, and clicks 'Save' then a dialog box opens: "Access denied. Contact
your administrator". This behavior is consistent on Solaris 9 and 10 and
Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 systems. There is no such problem with 3.2.7
so for the time being I've rolled back to that version. Any help or
suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
