CIFS server caching problem?

We've encountered a problem that appears to be with the CIFS server caching stuff.

In our repository, when someone uploads a file that already exists we want to copy the content across with versioning. This works fine usually. But when I upload a file via CIFS and then try to update it, Windows gives me the error that the file already exists (which it does… I want to update it though). If I restart Alfresco and try again, it works fine. To me, that sounds like Alfresco's CIFS server is caching something it shouldn't be and won't forget about that file until I restart.

Anyone have a guess at a solution?
