[Samba] 3.2.7 vs 3.5 locking logic/mechanism - locking denied to non-owners

hi everybody

I'm hoping some experts could shed a bit more light on the 
I cannot work it out and it's potentially quite a hassle

win xp sp3 client
samba 3.2.7 on sles 11
samba 3.5.10 on rhel 6.1

and one app the the front end to a user, that does not write 
anything back to the resure

this is what I think goes on:
3.5 somehow denies some sort of locking to the client if the 
user does not own/write to data tree
no such problem with 3.2

I've compared runtime configs of both sambas and virtually 
the look almost identical, well, where the differences are 
they look unrelated to the issue, at least to me.

does anybody have any suggestions? ideas?
greatly appreciated
