Ok, this is wierd....
I commented out the 'null passwords' option and it solved all my delays.
I forwarded my findings to another user who had the same problem, and his
problems were resolved to.
The speed has jumped from 10-15 seconds response time to less than a second.
I check the system logs and found two messages occuring everytime I clicked
on the share.
>> PAMDB - Structure no longer valid.
>> 1 Authentication failure (uid=0) budman -> Samba device
(Something like that)
Can this be a bug in 2.0.5a? This option works fine in 2.0.3.
