Unfortunately, yes.

I was sure my Samba config changes had fixed the problem, but it was just a
red herring
My changes don't seem to have fixed much at all, although when it does
fail, acts a little differently to what it did before

Thanks, I'm right in thinking ./Frameworks/file/src/save.cc is the place I
should be looking to make this change?

I mentioned some tests in the thread about atomic saving, if it still fails

Good point. I will re-run these tests
I think I provided the results from this before I made any smb changes, but
I will try again now my SMB config is different

Thanks Allan, As I say, I'm sure it's not a TM problem so much as the
environment Im using it in, So I do appreciate your continued advice :)
