Indeed: Ethereal helps very much!

2.2.4. No mods.

Configured with 

  # ./configure --prefix=/usr/local --with-quotas --with-msdfs --with-included-popt --with-acl-support

Well, this is actually another problem I introduced (I believe) by having 
'nt acl support = no' on the homes share.

I corrected this and uploaded a new logfile/trace/smb.conf
to www.zhwin.ch/~kgc

This is the actual problem, causing the delay of 6 to 10 seconds.

I tried the same with a Windows 2000 client. I think there were the
same problems, but the client didn't try that long, so the delay
wasn't as annoying.

log.smbd doesn't contain anything recent or interesting and
log.$client: where is this file?
