hmmm, there must be a typo in the above I think. It implies that the
problem doesn't happen no matter what you do. I need to know what I
need to do to reproduce this, not what to do to not reproduce it :-)

don't bother with a sniff yet, I'd much rather have a way to reproduce
it. sniffs of trans2 calls are very hard to work with, so we should
probably only resort to those if we really need to. (sniffs of normal
smb calls are easy to parse in your head, the trans2 encapsulation
is what makes things hard).
