Samba 2.2.3a + Win2K

I've got a client who's running Samba 2.2.3a on their RedHat 6.2 server. 
  They've got a number of Windows clients, all of which are a stock 
Windows 2000 with no service packs installed. There is another machine 
(a Toshiba laptop running the Toshiba "version"/"distribution" of 
Windows 2000), which doesn't report as too having service pack 2 
installed, but that doesn't necessarily mean it's not.

All of the above clients are able to join the domain and generally do 
windows-type stuff, but whenever the laptop attempts to display a 
networked directory with more than 200 files (not a precise number) in 
it, explorer crashes. The laptop doesn't have the same problem 
displaying "large" directories on other Windows 2000 machines.

I remember that SP2 for Win2K caused some hiccups a while back, which is 
the only reason I mentioned it.

There were no unusual errors in the logs at level 3.

Has anyone seen similar, or better still, got a fix?
