CIFS MS Office file locking

I have locking problems with MS Office file using CIFS in alfresco 4. A lot of MS Office files seems to be randomly locked by "any user" when I try to open them from CIFS mount point on a windows workstation. So the file opens read only and user can't edit it. This problem seems to affect only MS Office files.

To solve this issue, I tried to upgrade from 4.0.d to 4.2.b, but the problem seems worst : more files are affected  :?

Is there is a know issue with CIFS and MS Office documents ? Is there is a way to completly desactivate locking function ?

Thank you.
