Sorry, but I am not sure what you are asking.  If you
are asking if there is a definite pause after the file
has been copied, then NO.  The slowdown seems linear,
regardless of file size.
i.e. I do not get a 10 second pause after a tiny
file has been copied.

I do not think that there is anything unusual about the 
client setup, except that we are running every protocol
and client known to man on the PCs :-)

>From memory, I did fiddle with the networking settings,
in that I restricted IPX to the Netware client and 
TCP(WINS) to the Microsoft client.  This did not seem to
make any difference.

The only thing on the list that could possibly be
related, is the W98 performance thingy.  Could it
be ??
