lots of getdirentries calls?

I've been observing some smbds via a system call trace and I've found that
it frequently makes calls to getdirentries(). I figured that this might
not really be a bad thing if the client, for example, keeps running DIR,
I've also noticed that frequent calls to getdirentries() ocurr when smbd
needs to resolve filenames that are of a different case than what the client
asked for. This makes sense, I guess.
But what I really don't understand is that this syscall occurs a number of
times in the netlogon share. In and around running the Win95 logon
script, smbd tends to keep re-reading the dir. Doesn't Samba cache dir
This is a DEC Unix 4.0D machine.
