[Samba] xp clients + home directories are SLOOOW

My samba server uses winbind and contains a [homes] section for the active
directory users logging into the domain.

Each user profile is pointing to the samba server for its "home directory"

When XP clients login however, moving around the desktop is extremely slow,
(after double clicking my computer, one has to wait 30 seconds or more)

It seems to be attributed to the "home directory".

This does not occur with w2k, and also does not occur when the local
administrator account is used without logging into the domain.

After manually mapping the drive, everything pops up very quickly.

Please help identify what is happening.
