I only had the problem when I was trying to limit access via linux 
groups.  (ie, our macschool database was not to be accessible to the 
students) -- when multiple people logged on and off (some "harshly" as 
the computers locked up) it tended to corrupt the database (.AppleDB) 
about once every 2 weeks.

We have moved away from the need for such sharing, and next year's 
netatalk shares will be strictly for the "My Documents" share per 
person.  I haven't had any problems when just one user logs in.  YMMV, 
but even with the occational blip -- it wasn't too hard to fix.
