[jcifs] incredibly slow transfer speed

I am trying to use JCIFS to transfer files to a Windows 2000
installation running as a VM on my machine.  Reading files using JCIFS
seems to go fast, but writing files is incredibly slow.

Here is an example of trying to send the jcifs-1.2.16.jar itself
(354K).  Using smbfs, the transfer completes in 0.1s.  Here is the
results of using Put.java:

361792 bytes transfered in 44 seconds at 8Kbytes/sec.

I tried modifying jcifs.smb.client.snd_buf_size, but it didn't seem to
have any effect.  Is there anything else I can tweak?

I am using JCIFS 1.2.16 and Java 6.0 update 2.
