Well, it should work the same way (good or bad) it does
against a Windows server. Once a second opener comes in, the
oplocks should be broken anyway. If I remember correctly in
the past I have seen hints by Microsoft how to turn oplocks
off in Windows server for shares that host Access files, so
this problem might not be samba-specific and/or fixed in
recent Windows.
