That would be the problem. Are you on Linux ? If so
are you using ext2 ? If so the performance problem
with large directories is well known.

Try using Reiserfs which will help with kernel performance
problems, but Samba still has to scan the entire directory
to provide a case-insensitive view of the filesystem.

Buying an operating system without source is like buying
a self-assembly Space Shuttle with no instructions.
