Access is written specifically for Win32 and obviously uses its remote
locking features. CIFS does provide safe, strict remote locks, but I'm
still 99% certain that Access uses a single lock per database.

It's quite possible that BDB would run just fine on a Windows shared
directory, except that you need exclusive access to any files you mmap.
