	Samba itself isn't size-sensitive...

	First, check that it's not a network problem:
	try ftp in both directions with both large and
	small files.

	We have had similar reports before, but that turned
	out to only work with very small files (< 512 bytes)
	and eventually was found to be an ethernet card.
