Server App does not change SMB AFP option as expected

I have been fighting SMB shares on Mac OS since upgrading to Mountain Lion (I skipped Lion) and I think I have the situation figure out at least in my case.
First Opportunistic Locking needs to be turned off in Windows 7. It does not appear that Mac OS supports it and this is why my connection got disconnected.
In the regestry at, [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\services\LanmanWorkstation\Paramet e rs] add this,  "OpLocksDisabled"=dword:00000001
Now for the SMB shares for people using the Server App. The Server App. is where you setup shares but I think there is a bug. In my case the Server App. was not actually turning on SMB and/or AFP services for the users listed in the server permissions. I had to go to Sharing under System Preferences then select the share I want the service to apply to then select Options. I found that the SMB and AFP services were not enabled even though they had been set in the Server App. Once I enabled them all was as it should be.

Same problem. I had to rebuild my LDAP database and when I imported the users and groups, they appear in Workgroup Manager but they don't appear in Server app. Well..   they do sometimes.  If I click the "Add Users" button, sometimes they'll appear briefly then go away in Server app. I can also edit a user and look at their group membership via Server app and the groups from Workgroup Manager appear but they are grayed out...  also, the users from the LDAP server will disappear at first and I have to click on another button, like "Configure Network" and then click back on "Add Users" and the network users will be there...  but no group.
This is crazy.  It's like working on a '74 Chevy Vega.  Did ANYONE at Apple QA this?
