Hey folks...


I'm using the Redhat Samba package (samba-3.0.33-3.15.el5_4.1) and I'm having
a problem with one specific user. When she opens a project for her program,
there are several shape files which need to open. Unfortunately, performance
is EXTREMELY slow for her; everyone else who accesses the project can open it
up quickly and normally.


A tail of /var/log/samba/<IP address>.log shows several of these errors:


close_remove_share_mode: Could not get share mode lock for file...



Can this be resolved by deleting a .tdb file somewhere? She has permissions
to said files.
