	Sure: use smbclient to see if this problem is
	with Windows clients or with the Samba server.

	If it occurs with smbclient too, it's on the server.

	If so, turn logging up to 10 and look for errors:
	you may want to offer a log for download. Similarly,
	you might need to do a packt capyure when you're
	reproducing the problem.

	If the problem is on the client, a packet capture
	would be good, with timestamps so we can see if something
	is taking way too long: pc clients, windows explorer and
	huge unix directories can be so slow as to cause timeouts
	on the PC end...
