Can't see files on WFW PC

CAn someone please help ?  I am trying to get directory listings on a
WFW PC, the same as I can for the Win 95 PCs on my home network.
I can get a list of shares, like so:

[root at foghorn ~]# smbclient -L wfw1
added interface ip= bcast= nmask=

        Sharename      Type      Comment
        ---------      ----      -------
        D              Disk      
        C              Disk      
        IPC$           IPC       Remote IPC

        Server               Comment
        ---------            -------

        Workgroup            Master
        ---------            -------

So far so good. Then I can connect successfully:

[root at foghorn ~]# smbclient //wfw1/C
added interface ip= bcast= nmask=

But when I try to do an ls, this is what I get after about 20 seconds:

smb: \> ls
Error: Looping in FIND_NEXT??
ERRSRV - ERRerror (Non-specific error code.) listing \*

                51314 blocks of size 4096. 23118 blocks available
smb: \> 

Anyone got any ideas ?  I'm running RH6.1, Samba 2.0.6.
