Copy and rename problems

I have installed Samba 2.0.5a on an SGI running IRIX 6.5.4f and
I am having 2 problems putting files onto the Samba server.

First, When you copy a large file to the server, it errors out
and the file eather never gets to the Samba server, or (Even worse)
it is there with the proper file size, but it is unusable.

I have reviewed the DIAGNOSIS.txt and other docs and all seams
ok.  I have also reviewed the Samba Listproc Archives for
the last few months.  It seams that a few people have the same
problem, but I have not found a solution posted yet. Does anyone
have any sugestions/solutions?

Second, When you create a folder "New Folder" from a windows
client into a Samba filesystem, it will *sometimes* not allow
you to change the name of the folder.  This is driving me
crazy.  I could rename folders and files the other day, and
Now it is broken again.  The only thing that is changed in
my smb.conf file is the line "log level =" ????

I am seeing "INTERNAL ERROR:" in my log files (sometimes) and 
on the console I get and infinite loop.  I have not been able
to track which error was caused with which problem yet.

Any Ideas? things to try?
