I have this problem too, since upgrading to samba 2.0.x.
If you often have to restore from samba to win9x, you'd better download
the 1.9.18p10 version of samba, and compile the smbclient you find in
there; it will be faster, much faster, in restoring to win9x shares.

Alternatively you can try to smbmount the win9x shares and restore using
normal tar.
