[Samba] Samba 2.2.8a :: High CPU usage

I'm facing a silly problem right now. I've installed samba 2.2.8a 
on a linux box, which is running SuSE 8.0 with a 2.4.20 kernel.

The problem is that the performance of the samba installation is 
quite poor on this system. As we tried to figure out what the 
reason is, we saw that the smbd daemon is running with a cpu usage 
up to 98%. That seemed strange to me and I have no clue what I can
do about it. 

I already searched through the maillinglist archives, but didn't 
found anything for this problem.

Any help on this is appreciated.

regards Lars
