Summary0000779: Server leaves leftover files in C:\MPTN\ETC\samba\lock\msg.lock\
DescriptionAs above, Dave Mckenna posted on os2world:
"I've tried everything I could think of, but nothing helps. I even uninstalled SAMBA from the server, deleted all files in C:\MPTN\ETC\samba (there were 55000 files in\lock\msg.lock !) then reinstalled the Netlabs package, and upgraded to your latest SAMBA but still have the slowness issue at the client. Went back to 4.11 on the server and everything works well, even the 4.18 smbclient on the client machine works without -t 60 then.

BTW, deleting those 55000 files makes the server start MUCH faster. Wonder if there is a way to clean those up before the server is shut down..."

There is a good chance this is caused by the OS/2 specific changes in

administrator   ~0004655 seems to improve the situation. I now only get left two 2x empty lock files, relating (I think) to the fact that smbd.exe gets a couple of forks but samba somehow doesn't keep track of the PID of the forked processes, so tries to remove the same lock file 3x times.

administrator   ~0004656 should correct this. It includes changes to clean up any errant lock files during smbd exit.
