Description aziem 2006-09-30 19:42:21 UTC
If Samba clients running Windows and 2.0.3 open the same document
through two different Linux Samba servers connected by NFS, then the application
instance with the lock goes into an error state where the document is saved as 0
bytes.  This part is interesting: Also, any document saved with any file name in
the same directory will also have 0 bytes until the test document is closed.

While file locking may have other issues, this issue focuses on the data loss

Attached please find a detailed report.
