samba boggles the mind

I was on my school linux box getting ready to reformat. I was copying a 6 gb backup tar file over samba to a windows server and one of my friends deleted the file while I was copying it. I had no problem copying the rest of the file even though it didn't show up when I tried to look for it both in the samba share and through shell on the local machine. The file copied fine, and it doesn't appear to be corrupt. I was just wondering how this is possible. All of us here are astounded and in awe that it managed to finish its copy. I was wondering if anyone has had any similar experiences with samba? Thanks.

It happens.
I had the same thing in a totally different experience.
I was playing a song in XMMS and i deleted the file, but xmms continued to play the whole song, then i couldnt play it again.

I think its because of the filesystem design, the way the memory locations are put to the garbage list.... and so on.
