Hmm. I would either think it a bug for Samba to be unable to tell
MSWindows that it had a file open for read, or a rather advanced
technique for Samba to be able to understand from simply mounting the
share as read-only that it could let MSWindows forego a lock on a
multiply opened file.

Mayb I'm just confused.
