[Samba] Error deleteing files through Samba

Hi! I have a problem with Samba. I have post to the mailing list but have
gotten no results. Any help would be appreciated:

I have a RedHat Linux box running Samba 2.2.5. I have it setup to be
a file server and it is shared on my Win2K client as the "S:" drive.
I have thousands of files in a single directory on the Linux box and
when I try to delete those files from the Windows share, SOME of the
files get deleted and some of them come back with the error "The
system cannot find the file specified". On top of that, the deletion
procedure is VERY slow. For instance, it could take an hour or so to
delete 10,000 files.

Anyone know what's going on? Here's my config file:

- ---smb.conf---

   netbios name = SPIDER
   workgroup = DEN
   log level = 2
   log file = /var/log/samba.log
   security = share
   server string = FTP Server
   hosts allow = 172.16.80. 127.
   interfaces =
   encrypt passwords = yes
   smb passwd file = /etc/smbpasswd
   mangle case = no
   case sensitive = no
   guest account = smbguest
   default case = lower

   path = /home
   browseable = yes
   guest ok = yes
   read only = no

- ---smb.conf---
