I have a problem:

Most of the times I open a file (mostly Excel XLS) remotely on the desktop from the SD card in my Zaurus, which is acessed via SMB / Samba from the Windows desktop, it opens the file nicely, but when I save my changes, Windows says that it couldn't save the file because the file "is used by another user" (freely translated from german error message).
I am asked to save it temporarily under another name or discard my changes.

It does not happen with all files.
I have not found a pattern yet when it does happen and when not.

Sometimes it even says "File is read-only or encrypted" and refuses to open the file at all.

What could be the reason for this?
The file is not used by another user ot application at that time.


edited: It's of course Samba, not NFS as I wrote before!
