Slow initial connect

I'm running samba on several systems, two redhat 6.1 systems and one Solaris
7 system.  On all three there's about a 5-10 second wait upon the first
connect before it logs in.  This is causing a problem, as on occasion it
fails to connect at all - gives no error or anything, just does nothing,
especially when double-clicking on shortcuts from the desktop.  And the
icons for said shortcuts turn from pretty yellow folders to nasty white
"I-dont-know-what-this-is" windows icons.

Has anyone seen this problem before?  Attached is smb.conf for one of the
systems (the others are pretty much the same).
