Hi to everyone!

I need to solve this problem.

There is a file example.xls who is used by a client on Windows XP 
system. This file is in my Ubuntu server and shared through samba to 7 
machines on a small network.

When a XP system hangs and the file is not closed clearly this file get 
locked and i need to restart samba for unlock this for can use (and 
edit) this file again.

What's wrong ?

Best regards.
