A tricky problem with Eudora and samba

I've just upgraded my OpenBSD box to 3.0 and the new samba
version, 2.2.1a. The old version I was using was samba 2.0.7.
Everything seems fine except for one odd problem with Eudora 4.3.2
and 5.1. I have a couple of Windows 98 workstations here and so
I keep the Eudora mail files in the users home directory on the
Eudora seems fine popping mail and moving email around mail folders
but it just won't send emails..
When I send an email (according to the samba logs) it opens the
Out.mbx file but then it wedges for exactly 45 seconds. Network
sniffing shows it connecting to the share (netbios_ssn) but never to
the SMTP server.
The msg box reads:
Could not read from file p:\mail\Out.mbx
Cause: The request contains an invalid argument (22)
It then opens the eudora log file and puts the above info into it.
It seems then that Windows looses it's way a bit, because the
after dismissing the msg box, windows re-connects to the share
It's got me stuffed. Perhaps there is a config option that has
changed between the two samba versions.
Anyone got any ideas?
I guess I'll re-install the older samba versions if I can't get
anywhere with this.
