Same error message for us.
We're working a windows domain environment on a samba4 server. It seams like that the error message doesn't appear when you are working with the domain admin rights. Normal user (with full edit rights) experience the problem regular though not always. I could narrow the problem down, seems like it appears a little randomly too.
I didn't test disabling oplocks from the client side.
We've now restored the NAS to factory defaults a couple of times, and upgraded the firmware twice. I can't replicate the issue any more, but the environment is not the same so it's not a true clean bill of health: we've pulled the unit out of production, so it's not being hit by up to 50 clients at a time. e.g. If the issue was because of load it's not being triggered any more.
We've kept the unit out of production because the performance is markedly poorer than when we first got it, about 25%, and I've spent weeks trying to figure out what is going on without success. Time to give up and move on to my real job: GIS, not sysadmin.
