Indeed, however smb locking still properly reports "this file is in use 
by...." etc. on the smb side.  If fact it seems to have had little 
effect except for now properly reporting who is using the file instead 
of always reporting the file is in use and locked by the owner.

Like I said, we still need to investigate more fully however the we see 
the issue on all NFS file systems when using the rpms from both the 
3.0.33 CentOS and samba-3x series from RedHat 5.5. Like the OP, local 
file systems do not exhibit this issue.
