Well. If programs act suboptimal when presented with a JCR server mapped 
to a drive letter through WebDAV, why do you think they'll work any 
better with a JCR server mapped to a drive letter through CIFS? It's 
only a different transport, but I don't think the main issues (*) will 
go away.

Best regards, Julian

(*) such as: lots of temp files, no use of locking, creating new files 
and moving them over instead of overwriting existing ones, causing loss 
of metadata
