NT 'Start' button hanging

Hi All,

I've recently upgraded an NT4.0 to SP3.  I applied the registry file to allow 
for clear-text passwords.  Now I've noticed that when I log in, if I hit the start 
button immediately after getting the desktop, the machine hangs for a 
couple of minutes, then the start menu is displayed.  The machine is
hung during this time.

Is there a reason why this happens?  My Win95 clients don't do this. It
seems like something is timing out...

On the NT box, I've got this TCP/IP protocol config:

IP Address: <assigned, no dhcp>
DNS: <samba machine address>
WINS server: <samba machine address>
Enable DNS for Windows Resolution: enabled
Enable LMHOSTS: disabled
I've included the global section from my smb.conf file.  The machine
is running AIX with samba-1.9.18p2.

Thanks is advance for any advice.
