Samba File Corruption

Has anyone seen file-corruption by Samba when files are copied
to an NT 4.0 machine?  We've been getting quite a few of those
lately with larger (>5MB) binary files.

It seems like only the last few bytes (50 or so?) are corrupted.  
(The file size seem OK.)

Samba Host: IRIX64 version 6.2
Samba Version: 1.9.17p2
Clients: NT 4.0 (with or without SP/3) P266 and P333

Seems to happen only on the "faster" NT machines.

Thanks for any advice.
