I am not sure this is a samba issue. I have also seen this once a
Windows NT 4 PDC and a somebody reported me this on a Windows 2000 ADC
(always with windows 98). Seemed to have to do with networking stuff.
I the Windows 2000 case, the guy that told me had contacted CISCO (they
were using a CISCO layer 3 switch) and CISCO changed some stuff on the
switch (don't know what). Same scenario for NT 4 case: Baystack switch,
PC's with Accton network card. Changed speed on switches (half duplex).
Problem did not completely disappear but sure improved.
