Sorry for the late answer but this could be Samba configuration problems 
regarding Oplocks (opportunistic locking).
We had a problem w. Samba up to and including 2.2.5 that we got a 
degradation in performance and file is already open.

If You set oplocks=no and maybe search on Samba archives for the full 
explanation it might help.
