    Ive been suffering from a problem that comes into the
    default samba provided by debian etch 4.0 stable.

    When there are file/dir modifications on shared
    folders, the results do not appear on the windows
    client inmediately.

    My configuration is the most basic possible, straight
    out of this howto

    a small chat on irc reveals some details, I am irule
    in there, and according to epsilon, I am not alone.

    any thoughts, please help, thanks

    <epsilon> I have samba 3.0.24 (debian stable) running,
    but changes n filesystem (new dir or new filename) get
    displayed in Explorer after I refresh, and not
    <epsilon> what can be the reason? I already tried
    'refresh = 1' in smb.conf and restarted, but no change
    <||cw> epsilon: default is 60 seconds i think
    <epsilon> ||cw: I have the almost same config (except
    path and username) on another box, it's running fine
    and changes get displayed immediatly...
    <epsilon> can't locate why this one box is behaving
    different with same binary...
    <||cw> check logs? maybe a lib is missing?

    irule> I have the same problem as epsilon, windows
    clients can not get the forlders upgraded on the fly
    when a file or directory is uploaded, deleted or
    anything else, I can only press [F5] key on clients to
    refresh folder view and my configuration is exactly
    this one

    <epsilon> irule: have you been able to fix this issue?
    <irule> epsilon nope, and I have 50+ users braking my
    back for it lol

    <epsilon> irule: strange is, I have as basic conf as
    yours on one box which has no problem with refresh...

    <epsilon> everything same (OS, conf) expect
    <irule> epsilon I know, Im asking the mailing list
    tho, this samba copy is being installed on too many
    servers to just ignore the issue
    <epsilon> yea, I found few posts in mailinglists with
    same issue, but none had any reply...
