Cool help: when changing files on samba share from windows system, changes do not appear

Hi all,

I have a samba share set up (v3.0.2 i think). when i modify files (delete directories/files, rename, etc.) from my windows system, the effects do not show up right away. i have to press F5 to see that indeed i did delete or rename that file. any thoughts would be greately appreciated. thanks.

That's not a bug, it's just the way it works (feature?).
Hooray for Windows.
