[Samba] Samba questions - updated

I have downloaded and compiled Samba 2.2.4. The Samba server is used
to access DFS space, so it was configured with DCE authentication. It
seems to work on for the most part. However we have seen the following
When opening a directory with a large number of files, it spawns
additional smbd processes for the mapped share, which utilize a good
percentage of the CPU. My windows workstation hangs for a while, and I
get multiple Windows Msgs that read: "An error occurred while
reconnecting Z to <share> - Microsoft Windows Network: the local device
name is already in use - This connection has not been restored".
The smbd processes remain at the top of the execution queue (I use
"monitor" to view system execution queue).
I used Windows Explorer to map the share and to display directory
contents. This crashed when I closed the Window Msg.
Are there any configuration parameters I could use to prevent this?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
I forgot to mention I am using AIX 4.3.3 at Maintenance Level 9, with
DCE 2.2 at ptfset 9 for may samba server
