Glad to hear it. That's the kind of behavior I would normally expect.
One thing that might be different between our environments is that my
users are all in Remote Desktop sessions connected to a pair of Windows
terminal servers. From there, they access the Samba shares. Perhaps the
situation is complicated by having so many different user accounts
accessing the same samba share from the same Windows server or something
like that. Anyway, since this is clearly a rare problem, I'm hoping that
one of the Samba developers will eventually take notice.
