I took a look at all of these catures, but none of the
pocketpc -> winxp client captures are useful. Neither
the first nor third capture contains a negotiate protocol
setup packet, meaning the session was already established
when you started the capture.

I need to see captures containing a negprot and session
setup (ie. the establishment of the SMB session from TCP
connect onwards) to be able to see the difference with
the Samba case.

Also please add filters to the capture so I don't see
all the other traffic going on on you network as well :-).
