Redirector timeout error with samba 2.09 and NT WTS

I found a post from a year ago which matches my current situation almost 
exactly, except that we are using samba 2.09.  Anyone resolve this yet?
Here's the previous text...


I'm running NT 4.0 Terminal Server (Service Pack 4) with Citrix MetaFrame 
1.8 on a PC, and Samba 2.0.3 on an HP-UX box. We've been having 
occasional problems with files not saving correctly, and also with files 
not unzipping or copying correctly. 

I suspect it's some sort of incompatibility between Samba and Terminal 
Server/Metaframe and/or SP4. For example, running a self-extracting zip 
file from a MetaFrame client fails about 90% through (the file is a 3.25 
MB Word file) and NT pops up a message stating "Error writing to 
<filename>. Possible cause: disk full." A separate message appears on 
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: 
        "The redirector has timed out a request to <samba_server>." 
with event ID 3013
