Samba is at version 3.0.25b-1.el4.4 on our gateways.  I'm not sure if
that's a workaround, since I've been unable to reproduce the behavior, it
is just certain random users.  Must be a special case, maybe they're using
the volume right as the move happens?  I'm baffled.  I could include it in
the mvto script.  That or a fs flush?
