Description of problem:
Not sure if this is a bug. But i'll mention it anyway. 

I have a homes share in my smb.conf:

workgroup = INW
server string = INW Fileserver
hosts allow = 192.168.0.
security = user
printing = cups
printcap name = cups
load printers = yes
encrypt passwords = yes
printer admin = root sander

comment = Home of %U
valid users = %S
browseable = no
read only = no

.... and some more shares
When i open an MS Excel file from the [homes] share with a Windows XP
Pro SP2 machine and MS Excel 2003 there is no problem. I can work in
the file as usual. But when i hit the 'Save' button, MS Excel gives me
a notification (in Dutch, so i don't have the exact translation) that
'the file could be modified by someone else' i can choose to 'make a
copy of the file' or to 'overwrite the changes'.

What is wrong here ? Is this some kind of bug? It only happens with
Excel files ... not Word files or normal .txt files. 

Also .. when i hit the 'red cross' to close the Excel application and
Excel asks me to save the document before exiting .. and i choose YES
.. THAT works fine !!! But the 'Save' button itself (or 'File' menu
'Save') .. does not. 

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
