[Samba] Problem file server with microsoft office temp files

I had the same issue when using vfs recycling. I solved it by using a cron script that removed them on a weekly basis (name .tmp, mtime +7). I guess that this is what recycle is supposed to do,  so no samba bug IMO.

Known problem, a known microsoft problem, word etc creates a temporary
file xxxxxxxx.tmp and then when the file is saved, it is supposed to be
saved with the contents of the '*.tmp' file with a new name and the
'*.tmp' file is supposed to be deleted, very often word etc doesn't.

You can hide the .tmp files with 'hide files' or you can add them to
'veto files'
