[Samba] vfs_fruit in 4.3.4 Directory Renames with Open Files Problem

Hello Ralph,

Thank you for your help with this. I've filled a bug report for this--it's
bug 11721. I agree with the approach of adding an option to disallow
renames with open files until Apple ships a fix.

Interesting how CNIDs work with AFP and how that along with other things in
AFP explains why the renames work correctly over AFP, but not SMB.

Best regards,
