All this time reading of these problems and finally i have some input.  :)  
I had the same problem and if you are like me I blamed Samba also.

Turned out to be a flakey NIC on my Linux machine.  I setup wu-ftp on the 
Linux box and tried downloading from the server and to my surprise it still 
broke.  I suggest you do a similar test.  Good chance it is something 
besides Samba.
