Dear all,

I did not find anything related to this problem;

Samba with sendfile support enabled, works fine with W2k but not with

Problems with NT4 are constant lockups (which take half a minute for
computer to start responding again) when accessing network drives.

- All our NT4 workstations show this behaviour.
- Disabling sendfile cures this problem.
- W2k workstations are not affected in any case.

Anything to test? Is this a known reason?
