Strange behavior on share

Dear Samba Users

I am going thru a very odd behavior accessing a share. This is the scenario 
under samba 2.0.7:

[sophia_medio]
        comment = Sophia Financeiro  - Medio
        path = /home/receber/sophiafin/medio
        admin users = @users, @receber, @funcs
        write list = @users, @receber, @funcs

If one's map (under W98) a drive letter to this share and execute the program
it takes about 17minutes to acomplish the task. 
But if I change this share to

path = /home/receber/sophiafin

map a drive letter to this new share and descend to the "medio" subdirectory
and execute *the same task* it takes only 3 minutes!

The task in question is a database (DBF) index validation.

And *YES*. I repeated the task with the first link and it took the same 17 
minutes discarding the fact it could be a disk cache effect on second run.

Any clues?

Amazing regards
