[Samba] XP, shares and connections to port 80

I see the same thing with my WinXP Pro machines. They also make several 
attempts to connect to port 80. I am still trying to figure out why. I 
think that this is part of the reason that there is a significant delay ( 
20-30 sec ) when connecting to a share for the first time. XP attempts to 
connect 3x, each with at least a 3sec delay after receiving the 
instantaneous "dest unreachable" from my samba srver.

Possibly explorer trying to show the folders with html content? ( Even 
though I have this option turned off in XP. )

Do you experience a delay on the first time that you open a particular 
share, but not afterwards?
