Angry Samba does not delete files

When I delete files from my linux box using "rm" the files delete fine..

But when I delete files using windows explores with a mapped drive to a samba share...

The file apparently deletes, but when you refresh - the file is still there and when you "ls" that folder on the linux box, the file is still REALY there.

I hope this makes sence.... i'm out of ideas and REALLY despirate!!!!!!!!

roman:~# smbd -V
Version 2.2.3a-15 for Debian
roman:~# uname -r
