This problem is most likely caused by the samba server. New linux kernels
(2.6.25+) can't properly talk to old (buggy) samba servers.

However, kernel 2.6.28 and later has a workaround with a new mount
parameter (nodfs) that will make it work again.

Kernel 2.6.29 is almost here for F10 I believe.

Hmm even crappier then... the samba server is CentOS 5... or are you saying that with 2.6.29 on F10, if I mount with nodfs it should work?

If that is the case, then 2.6.29 doesn't fix it. I added nodfs to my mount point on a F10 machine with the updates-testing 2.6.29 kernel. OO behaves even more oddly, opening it I can't see the document at all. It says read-only as well.

If I were to grab a newer samba and mock build it for EPEL 5... and that build succeeded, should that fix the issue then? (CentOS being at 3.0.33, and F10 at 3.2.11) ?
