We're being bitten very hard by this problem, except that our
WTS installation is running SP3 rather than SP4.  It may be
associated with messages like this in the Samba log:

[1999/05/05 17:11:16, 0] lib/util_sock.c:write_data(407)
  write_data: write failure. Error = Broken pipe
[1999/05/05 17:11:16, 0] lib/util_sock.c:write_socket(191)
  write_socket: Error writing 75 bytes to socket 5: ERRNO = Broken 
[1999/05/05 17:11:16, 0] lib/util_sock.c:send_smb(568)
  Error writing 75 bytes to client. -1. Exiting

>... NT pops up a message stating "Error writing to 
><filename>.  Possible cause: disk full."  A separate message appears 
>the MetaFrame console stating:       
>        "System Process - Lost Delayed-Write Data
>         The system was attempting to transfer file data from buffers
>         to <filename>.  The write operation failed, and only some
>         of the data may have been written to the file."
>Finally, in the NT Event Log, I get the following error:
>        "RDR"
>        "The redirector has timed out a request to <samba_server>."
>with event ID 3013
