Check the Samba logs (level 10) and include timestamps to see where the 
hang is occurring.  The refreshing issue is a known isssue in Samba 2.2.
The Print change notify code is a little iffy.  Much better in 
the SAMBA_3_0 cvs branch.  

I should mention that the print change notify stuff requires that the 
NT+ client being running the Server service (renamed to File & Print 
Shareing for MS Networks).
