Samba strange problem

seems i have a strange problem :

I use a samba file server that uses X windows. When I upload files from a 
windows 2000 clien, the server (freebsd 4.4) seems to stop working : I can't 
ping anymore, I can not use any connections either and I have to reboot to 
get a connection back.

The very strange thing is that when I do not startx the samba server is 
working fine ... upload and download.

It's also working fine (upload & download when X is started) when the client 
is a win98 box.

Anyone experienced this before ? 

I'm using the lastest version of samba.
