Ok - at this time I am using the following non-default settings:

Samba server - smb.conf
    ea support = Yes
    use sendfile = Yes
    fake oplocks = Yes
    delete readonly = Yes

Dovecot - dovecot.conf
    mmap_disable = yes
    dotlock_use_excl = yes
    fsync_disable = yes
    lock_method = dotlock

I'm still testing - but at this time I'm seeing no errors.

Two options I can state cause severe problems are the "directio" and 
"setuids" mount options for the cifs client.
