[Samba] 80k+ locked files from single samba user

our setup succesfully serves 100+ concurrent users for years.

beginning a month ago every few days we see single users with 80k+ locked files. Normally all users together only have <5k locked files.

This large amount of locked files degrades server performance (too much consumed memory, server beginns swapping).

Is there any way i can prevent single users to lock more than for example 500 files?

thanks + best regards
