Please don't re-export NFS imports via Samba. This is not
really supported exactly due to the problems you mention.

If you absolutely must do this because for example your
NetApp NFS server does not have CIFS enabled, you might want
to try setting "posix locking = no" in your smb.conf. This
works around bugs in your NFS client and means
cross-protocol locking is not done.
