Don't know if there is one -- and there was no SMB2 in 3.5.11...

But I misread this one...  It doesn't say it affects 3.5 or before...

Dang...now which one was it!...remember reading one recently that hit
3.6 ... that I thought had to do with file access problems. ..

Just your symptom sounded very similar..

I would see a file with the real name created in the target dir,
then see a tmp file created and grow to the size of the file, then would get
a message that the file couldn't be saved due to an access problem.

In the save dir, I'd find the initial file it created @ 0 bytes.

The 'tmp' file I'd find in my server's "recycle" dir for that dir -- and 
it would
be the full file.

(I have the vfs recycle2 option turned on for many of my shares... so 
the tmp files
ended up in there;  if you don't have that option turned on, then the files
would just get deleted)...
