All I can say is, this doesn't happen with win98 and samba 1.9.18p8 
(at least not on our small LAN).  AFAIK, our win98 machine does 
*not* have any of the M$ updates installed yet; does yours?  It 
looks like it's either specific to the new linux kernel/samba 2.x, 
or your samba/linux configuration is still goofy.  Are you running 
the samba binary from your SuSe distribution, or did you compile it 
yourself? (always better to do the latter, IMHO)
