I'm having problems with Word documents stored on a Samba server.
Does any of this sound familiar?
The set-up is
Word 6.0c, WfWg 3.11, Microsoft TCP/IP 32
(The other side)
Samba 1.9.15p8, Linux 2.0 (slackware).
Everything works fine when I (e.g.) copy files around with the File
With Word, small documents seem ok, but saving a large document causes
Word to spend 2-3 minutes in a state where it sends 2-3 read-raw
requests per second to the file server: the lights on my net hub flash
slowly and rythmically, and the log.smb trace reveals what's going on.
After a long delay, Word eventually starts responding to events again,
but usually dies soon afterwards.
I've tried various things blindly (like increasing the Net heap size
and trying 16 bit TCP/IP instead) but with no effect. I have a hunch
that OLE embedded objects might be the source of trouble, but that's
just a hunch.
