Just a quick question about the ports you mentioned. What is port 445 used
for in xp.

Do you have a firewall set up ?
You might be disallowing connections on 445 thus causing a timeout and
reconnection on 139.
I think you can force the client to avoid 445 (not sure about that)
You'll want to have a look at the logs to see exactly what is happening
on the server during the time your client is hung.
