Thanks Peter, the patch worked for me also.  I can now access files 
which are open on the server....

However there remains one issue which I didn't mention in my original 
post, and which is still exists.

Essentially the reverse of the previous scenario, in that having opened 
a file on the server other clients
are denied permission to open that same file.  Only once the file has 
been closed are other clients able to
open it.

Can you confirm this also?
