Thank your for the interesting links, but they seem to discuss corruption
problems (which I don't have).
Anyway I managed to perform some more tests with various settings of locks, op
locks, caching, etc. The only significant parameter (if I'm not missing
anything fundamental) I didn't test extensively is the lock spin, which I'll
test in the next few days.
I even tried samba 3, but to no avail (it was slower).
Sometimes it got a little faster or slower, but the loading time never went
below 30 seconds and this is way too slow compared with 2 seconds on a
Windows 2000 server. Meanwhile all other application run faster with samba
than with Windows (as expected :)).
During those 30 seconds the CPU load takes 80% user time and 20% system time
and this is with just one client. What could possibly take this much
