[Samba] Sleeping Clients

I have tried posting this problem before and had some jelpful suggestions, but to no avail. Let me reword the problem and possibly jog someone head.

My hardware/software config:

Samba 2.2.7a
Suse 8.0 distro
Athlon 2000+ XP machine mucho memory.
One ethernet interface verified running 100 Full-duplex.

The problem:

The Windows XP clients logon to the Samba server and download the roaming profiles extremely fast, but after this point just stops. The clients never come back, just keep showing "logging on". The SignOrSeal entry has been done on the XP clients.

I have turned Samba trace level=3 and it shows the sighon and download of the profiles and then shows nothing happening - no errors, just nothing.

The machines(server and clients) appear configured correctly as non samba traffic is very robust (FTP, ping, mail etc). When I disable roaming profiles I have the same problem after the logon the Client is "stuck". This problem happens from 2 totally different XP clients (Hardware is very different between the 2). The Router/switch looks heathy. I have applied all patches to XP and microcode to the router/switch. I have tried Samba 2.2.3a and 2.2.6, 2.2.7, 2.2.7a all with the same result.

I am using DHCP from my provided by my router. 

I do see in my wins.dat that I have no entrty 1d showing a Local Master Browser, but on is displayed when I do a nmblookup - just fishing on this.

I have run my smb.conf in another network and it works great.

Any ideas from anyone that could help?
