	 used to be problems with 3com cards and free bsd,
	but I don't **think** you have either for them, based
	on the ftp test.

	The only thing that samba does differently than
	ftp is to use a single connection and multiplex
	both commands and data on it. Transferring
	large files with ftp should produce exactly the same
	tcp operations as samb with raw read/write turned on.

	My brain hurts...
