Kernel update has broken SAMBA

Ever since the last kernel update (which I noticed included patches to address SMB vulnerabilities), I have not been able to get the SAMBA client on SuSE 9.1 PE to work correctly. I can mount shares with smbmount and I can then read existing files and write new files. However, I can't open existing files for writing or overwrite existing files. If I do, there is a pause and then an error. For example:

[andrew@neptune-suse scratch]$ touch testfile
[andrew@neptune-suse scratch]$ cp testfile ~/mnt/SOL/copying/
[andrew@neptune-suse scratch]$ cp testfile ~/mnt/SOL/copying/
cp: cannot create regular file `/home/andrew/mnt/SOL/copying/testfile': Input/output error
[andrew@neptune-suse scratch]$

I've tried it against several SAMBA servers, running on SuSE 9.1 PE, Mandrake 10.1, SME Server (Was Mitel, now Lycoris) and Fedora Core 3, and I get the same result.

However, SMB clients on Mandrake 10.1 and Vector 4.3 (Slackware based) work OK against these servers - so it appears to be a client side problem.

Anyone got any ideas? Here's my smb.conf, if it helps:
