     I think you're right: there are allowable SMB timeouts, and
     we've seen *reports of *horrible** handling of them in the
     mailing-list before.  I think they were NT. but my memory is
     very poor (its a frayed tape, eith it's index on disk: I
     can usually remember something happened, but not what (;-))

     Fair enough, but I'd recommend putting in a request to the
     powers that be to split them up for everyone's performance.
     In the future, in their Copious Spare Time.

     I'd raise it at samba-technical at samba.anu.edu.au as something
     that Samba is having problems with, but which are probably not
     Samba's fault.  The folks there may well have some ideas about
     diagnosing it in sufficient detail to allow either you or they
     to come up with a workaround.
