Ok, we have a samba anomaly, lest's eee if we can pin ot
down a bit for the team...

That's the mesage you get when the client suddently
drops the connection...

You'll need to capture the packets being sent,
starting just before the open and continuing until the
reset message appears onSamba, and until it
succeeds on NT. I mildly reccomend ethereal for
doing the packt captures. Email the binary
(uninterpreted) captur efiles to me, and I'll
extract the differences.
