Win98-Screensaver causes traffic

I've a question about Win98 connected to a samba-server. 
If I open on the Win98 machine a file on the samba-server and the 
screensaver on the Win98 machine turns on while the file is open it 
causes much networktraffic (about 40 packets per second):
The Win98 machine asks continously about the attributes of the 
folder which contains the opened file. If I do the same on a Win95 
machine theres no networktraffic caused by the opened file.

Does anybody know a cause and perthaps a solution of this
