Hmmm, some further info might be useful.
Is the Samba server an AD DC or a simple member server?
Do you know (perhaps from a capture) whether the excess logon time is
mostly caused by the initial authentication or by trying to retrieve
the GPO and/or roaming profiles?
Do you know whether or not Kerberos is being used or if the client is
falling back to NTLM?
