Hmmm, I have looked at this trace (Ethereal is great), and it is very 

What version of Samba? Have you made any mods to Samba?

The trace seems to show that your client is trying to access 
\private\desktop.ini, which fails in wierd ways (STATUS_INVALID_HANDLE), 
even though the file was opened successfully.

The client then tries to do a bunch of RPCs, all of which fail trying to 
bind to the RPC operation with the same status.

What does the log.$client or log.smbd show with respect to these? It tries 
to bind to the pipe \srvsvc and fails with the same response all the way 
to the end of the trace. ...
