slow concurrent accesses

I'm having performance problems with samba v2.0.3/freeBSD3.2 when
there's more than one client using the same share.
Every thing works, but very slowly - about 30 seconds to
open an Access table. When there is only 1 client, it
takes about a second. The server is almost 100% idle.
I tried samba v2.0.5a on a Linux and the problem also
On a MSWindows NT workstation holding that share,
the problem disappeared.
We had the program working fine on older version of
samba - 1.something.
We have a mixture of win95 and NT workstations. It suffices
2 concurrent access to degrade the performance tremendously.
I don't think it has nothing to do with the application
because it was working fine on an older version of samba.
Did anyone experience such problems ?
What is the proper way to debug concurrency on samba -
watching locks, measuring times, etc?
Thanks in advance,

PS: I tried to eliminate locks - for test purposes - but smbstatus reports
