[Samba] smb_add_request times out

I've been trying to copy a folder ("My Documents", actually) from a Win2K
machine to a Linux machine running Samba. I can mount the folder under Linux
using smbmount, but when I attempt the copy, using either rsync or cp, I get
repeated messages like this after some files have been copied correctly:
smb_add_request: request [cd403380, mid=797] timed out!
On further investigation I determined that the copy was hanging up on a
particular file -- a .ppt file of about 2.8MB. The preceding files were all
much smaller. I was able to copy that file onto a different Win machine
with no difficulty at all, so the problem clearly lies with some interaction
between Samba and Win2K. I doubt if the particular contents or nature of
the troublesome file are relevant. The file is large but hardly huge.
I'm running Samba 3.0.9-2.1.5, packaged as a SuSE rpm, under SuSE 9.1 Linux.
If it's relevant, I also have open-ldap2-client 2.2.6-34 installed.
What is worse is that if I do the full rsync copy and just let it run,
eventually the entire Linux machine freezes and must be rebooted.
