After every TRANS2_FINDFIRST/NEXT there is a little pause to give
Win95 the chance to recover. But that does not really fix it. The
correct fix would be to allocate huge buffers to get very much at a
time, and try it 3 times and merge the results. At least that is what
I have once seen on the wire. smbfs can not affort huge buffers in
kernel space, and does not read directories several times for speed
reasons. smbclient is a bit better as it has larger buffers, but it is
not perfect either.
