This ("the problem MUST be") is also false, for the same reasoning.
"works locally" is not comprehensive enough testing to rule out bugs.
For example, the difference in time taken to complete I/O operations
could easily affect the behavior of a race condition. Overlapped I/O
may complete in a different order over the network. Packet
fragmentation can cause partial completion of operations. Virus scans
could interact with network traffic. Lost packets could result in
failed operations and trigger error handling and retry code that never
gets exercised locally (this should not be dismissed as a "problem
with the network") There are a LOT of other factors involved with
accessing file shares beyond just Samba.
