Vim on SMB share

I know this is slightly OT, but it is still using FBSD!
I have a SMB share mounted, and can generally write to it. I can copy
files to it, delete them, use 'ee' to edit and save them.
However, when using Vim, I can load and edit without warning, but if I
try to save it I get "E212: Can't open file for writing"
I can however create a new file on the share using Vim without problems,
try to edit it and get the same problem.
Whilst using Gentoo Linux, I did not have an issue with this (but that
box has destroyed itself, hence the move to a FBSD box)
Is this a known thing with Vim/SMB/FBSD? Any ideas on something stupid
I have overlooked?
