[Samba] Powerpoint 2007 not advancing slides

Hi Everyone

Samba 3.6.7 on OpenSuse 12.2 x86_64

I have an unusual problem for which I have not been able to find a 
solution on the Internet.

With Powerpoint 2003, there was no issue. With Powerpoint 2007, the user 
cannot advance slides unless the file is saved locally on the client 
(Windows XP SP3, ntfs filesystem).

When the file is loaded from the samba share, the user can edit and save 
their powerpoint. They simply cannot run a slideshow. Regardless of the 
slideshow settings, you cannot advance to the next slide.

Any assistance would be appreciated.
