Description of problem:
On the windows client, when you rename a file and save it, it creates a new file.
While the new file shows the correct size, the old file is a 0Kb file.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create a distribute volume.
2.Create a Samba-VFS share for the distribute volume in the /etc/samba/smb.conf file.
3. Map the share on the windows client. Create some files.
4. Access the share via windows explorer, right click -> New -> New Text document.
5. A new text file is created, rename the file say abc.txt. Open the file and edit it and save the file. A new file is created with the same name.  

Actual results:
While the new file shows the actual size of the file, the old file is a 0Kb file.

Expected results:
should not create a new file. The same file should be updated.
