bug#2920: emacs freezes because of lock files in samba server

Just for information: the workaround is to set the following in /etc/samba/smb.conf (in my case is an Ubuntu linux samba server):

unix extensions = no

so that now there is no problem editing the files mounted in a Volume in my MacOS Leopard client :)

I found that in fact when I perform the command

rm .#prueba.xml

on the mounted directory in the client computer, the operating system tries to delete the file but it doesn't manage to delete it in the server... This behaviour only occurs with links to other files. For instance, I created a file "otraprueba.xml" which points to "prueba.xml" and then tried to delete it (working on the client computer), without success.

So, apparently it is a Mac OS or Samba problem.
