OK. My enviroment- RedHat 6.2, kernel 2.2.19enterprise (or, sometimes, 2.4.4),

I connect to samba from w2k server without SP from wmware running on the same

machine. Application is Windows Commander, but the same problem is with

Explorer. I'm trying to copy Win98SE distribution, application freeze on 100% copy

As I remember there was message in technical list from Gerald Carter with the

same problem description:

I've tracked down a bug with the large read/write support.  Very easily
reproducable using Word97 and Win2kSP2 (wounldn't you know it).
This is just an fyi... the smbd process seems to loop endlesly on read()
(the client keeps sending data).

I'll keep working on it.
