Bug in hosts allow/hosts deny processing

I am seeing a problem in Samba 2.0.6 where if you have a hosts deny entry,
and you try to access the Samba server from the denied host, Samba gets
stuck for a long time in check_access.  So long infact that Windows has
reset the connection by the time Samba has popped out.  The client gets a
busy message rather than something more informative ...

Has anyone else seen this?  Do I need to debug the code some more?
