There has been lots of discussion on this topic in this group - both
theoretical and actual experience.  The consensus amongst those who
experienced this problem and solved it was :
1.  All drives on the network must be addressed using the same drive
2.  Set local share (in BDE) to true.

If I remember correctly option 2 alone might have solved this problem.
However both of these in combination definitely solved this problem.
So I suggest give this a try and let us know since this is a very
common problem.
