I am setting linux up as a PDC for windows (98 and XP) machines. I have
had good success with version 2.07 but when I upgrade to version 2.2.3a6
(Iam using a Debian release of linux) logons from user machines and
acces to home directories work fine but take a really long time to
connect. It takes about 30 seconds to logon, another 30 seconds to
access the home directories and another 30 seconds to open the home
directory. With 2.07 this is all completed very quickly. Is this a known
bug (I have not found any reference in the bug reports), an unknown bug
or is there something different betwenn the setup of 2.07 and 2.2.3a6
that I am missing?

Your reply would be greatly appreciated as I have spent the past 2 weeks
trying to sort this out and the past 2 months trying to convince
management to switch from Windows NT to linux, and this problem is
making it difficult to justify the change.

Thank you for your time and help.
