I was looking at the samba-status with swat. When I run the application 
with dosemu (i.e. fast respone), the database-files are opened with an 
exclusive oplock. When I run the app in Windows, there is no (none) 
oplock. Does this ring any bells ?

P.S. is it possible there's a bug in swat ? The headers of Open Files 
are not all OK, and the user-id is not "reverse resolved". Or is it 
Webmin that does this ?
