Problem delivering files

Hello samba people
I do not know if it is a bug, but a problem indeed:
we have a Sun running solaris 2.7 samba 2.0.6)
and NT clients AND a HSM Filesystem called samfs.
This keeps data on tapes, and 16kB on disk. A client
request a file can leed into grabbing a tape and bring
back the data online to disk.
1) NFS Client waits for data until it's coming, even 1 day
2) (NT)/smbclient gets 16k which are allready online
then get 3 times
receive_smb: length < 0!
then stoping communication and
Error code 0 closing remote file
(0.265384 kb/s) (average 0.265384 kb/s)
So, what's happening here ?
IMHO, smbd makes a open(file_A), read(file_A) gets 16k and
send them to the client, then it is waiting for the next bytes
... I would suggest is: sending 0bytes to the client for what reason
But you will know better, and having a solution (I hope)
Thanx in advance
