Ok, let me get this straight.  If I host the file on Linux using Samba, and 
connect to it using mixed Windows and Linux/Wine clients, the locking 
should be respected all around?

If so, then that's completely acceptable.  For me, anyway.

So... where is the failing exactly?  Windows SMB clients connecting to 
Windows SMB servers respect locks just fine.  Windows SMB clients 
connecting to Linux Samba shares respect locks just fine (I've been doing 
this for years).  Is the problem with the smbclient then?  Sorry, I'm a 
layperson when it comes to all this lowlevel stuff...
