Why don't you just directly map the server's shares on your windows
Just some generic advice, since there is not much information in your letter
about how you have your samba shares configured.
oplocks = False      
strict sync = yes 
sync always       
into your smb.conf. These settings are not the default.
These belong in the share.
These options degrade performance, but, you don't sound like that is your
man smb.conf  
for the details.
You can quickly go to the sections on these topics with:
/    oplocks
Let the list know if this fixes your problem.
