Default debug level produces nothing in the interim.  -d 10 produces
lots.  What would you like?

Jumping down to the wire, I've posted the following tcpdump output.
At 13:04:25 I hover over a file and right-click.  (Double-clicking
would have produced the same delay, but generated lots of other
wire activity..)  I assume nmbd doesn't know what to do with it.
Notice 15 seconds later, WinXP gives up and continues with the
standard file read.
