[next time I won't hit send before finishing my thought, sorry]

The interesting thing is that:

# smbclient \\\\snapper\\dfs <password> -U Administrator -E -W CISWINNET
-D home -d3 -Tqca /tmp/test.tar


of size 15593375 bytes as a tar file backup20010502.zipnread=0

  signing_good: SMB signature check failed on seq 7!

# smbclient \\\\snapper\\dfs <password> -U Administrator -E -W CISWINNET
-D home\\faculty\\bryant\\bryantback-brblt\\Images\\backups -d3 -Tqca

works fine.  So it's not the particular file that causes it to fail, but
perhaps when it hits a certain threshold for total amount of data?

Should I be taking this to one of the more technical lists?
