[Samba] Samba process throttled back?

Actually, I've performed a network trace, but I was looking for something different.  I'm no expert in the SMB protocol, so I appreciate your comments.  I'll look for these calls and see what I come up with.

Being the only one does not mean no oplocks are broken.
Excel as a sample application is very prone to do that. To
make 100% sure, you will need to look at the network trace
and look for locking&x calls from server to client without a
request. That's what I would look for next. But as you have
already done that I can't help anymore. Sorry.
