these are indeed temporary word files. I think it's a locking issue
although I'm not familiar to this. But as a quick & dirty workaround you
can delete them safely if you're sure the edited files are closed, maybe
in a cron process when the users are logged out and smb is down.
I'm sure there's a lot of samba locking discussion in the web.
