I had the same problem. Unfortunately getting rid of the bogus SMB<->NFS proxy approach was no option.
The solution was a kernel patch found on a Samba mailing list (don't recall which one, a couple of years old IIRC).
Here's the patch as it will apply to a RHEL5/CentOS5 kernel:
--- a/fs/nfs/file.c 2011-02-22 12:49:27.000000000 +0100
+++ b/fs/nfs/file.c 2011-02-22 13:14:57.000000000 +0100

fl->fl_owner = (fl_owner_t)filp;
fl->fl_start = 0;
fl->fl_end = OFFSET_MAX;
I downloaded the kernel source rpm, installed it and put the patch into a file in the /usr/src/redhat/SOURCES directory.
Then I modified the /usr/src/redhat/SPECS/kernel-2.6.spec file to apply the patch and ran
rpmbuild -ba kernel-2.6.spec
The kernel RPMs created are in /usr/src/redhat/RPMS/<architecture>
Mail me if you need details regarding this procedure...
