FWIW, this does not happen with the same samba installation, and a Windows
2000 workstation, all service packs, patches, etc.  Logging in takes all of
about three seconds.

So we've narrowed this down to a problem with XP and Samba 3.0b[13].  Can
anyone give a hand at trying to figure out /exactly/ what's going on?  The
only thing I can think of doing next is to really bump up the logging level.
