redirector timeout ?

I am running samba 1.9.18p3 on Solaris 2.5.1
The clients are NT 4.0 sp3

Everything was running smoothly, and then I applied the solaris "y2k" patches.
Now, most accesses to samba will hang for a minute or 2, before completing. In
the event log I see messages like:

        The redirector has times out a request to <server name>

This did not used to happen. This is very puzzling, and quite annoying, to
have to wait 1 to 2 minutes for a directory or file access (each directory
or file access).

anyone come across this before ? and suggestions ?

thanks, and regards,
