[Samba] Slow response & excessive CPU utilization with Foxpro

I have a samba server (2.2.7) installed. Server is RedHat 7.1. It is
installed from an RedHat RPM samba-2.2.7-1.7.3.i386.rpm. Clients are all XP
Everything works, but when a database program (based on MS Visual FoxPro) runs its databases from
there (the samba server), the server CPU utilization of smbd goes to 98% and stays there
until the data transfer is done.
The data transfer also is extremely slow. Only about 0.5% of the bandwith of
10baseT gets used according to XP Pro task manager on the client.
I have tried disabling oplocks, level 2 oplocks and kernel oplocks in
the global level and also in the share level. I also tried adjusting
send and receive buffers (default 8192) to 4096. TCP_NODELAY is set, too.
So far nothing has worked.
Any ideas on what to try next?
