Hi Volker,

I know that, that's why I will give it a share of it's own. That 
application is "write one/read many".

Is there an explanation for the fact that when I run the application in 
dosemu on a linuxbox, the files are opened with an exclusive lock, while 
under "regular Windows", the files are opened without locks ? And that's 
on the same share.

Now that I think of it, I don't see any files opened with oplocks ! All 
my locking options are default. Why are there no oplocks ?
