We upgraded from 1.9.16p10 to 1.9.17p2 about two weeks ago. Following
the upgrade we experienced problems with the performance being much
slower, particularly stalls on reconnecting after timeout.
Occasionally, we also experienced SAMBA services not being available
("The network path was not found") temporarily (similar time delays to
the stalls), and then becoming available again without any intervention
on the Unix side. Judging from the list messages, other have
experienced possibly similar problems on Windows 95. (We are using NT.)
We have not time to make a detailed investigation currently. I have
reverted our Samba servers to 1.9.16p10 and the problem seems to have
gone away. I am keen to know what the cause of this might be, and
whether it is an identified problem in 1.9.17 series. Has it been
fixed in 1.9.17p3 or 1.9.17p4?
