has anyone seen this problem before:

Win 95 (4.0.950) network login is very slow. Takes 10 minutes. The
netlogon.bat has about 6 statements in it. most of them use xcopy to copy
files that have changed up to the server.

However, zero or very few files are copied.

If I look at the network traffic, what I see is the server responds very
quickly, but the next operation from the client is not issued for half a
second.  It looks like Win95 is out to lunch for half a second between each
network operation.

The ethernet card is known to be good. I placed it in another system.
