There is just a problem: In a Linux 2.2.16 (SuSE 7.0) and W2K SP1
scenario, the Linux client (!) apparently does not see any notifications
that are made due to changes to a directory on the W2K SP1 "server" while
the share is mounted.

IOW, on the Linux side, I always see the cached directory. The other way
round (Samba serving to W2K SP1) works flawlessly...

Well, I recently shuffled around 500 MB across a 100 MBit network over NFS
- worked perfectly, saturated everything around, and, most importantly,
kept all the mode bits...
