Turns out that we are seeing similar CPU spikes on the server whether
the server is a Windows box of a *nix box running Samba. To me, this
would indicate that this is a problem with the Mac OS X client. Based on
the packet dumps, I would say that the Mac OS X Samba system is doing
the the directory contents lookups in a very inefficient manner. Since
OS X is running a version of Samba... Anyone have any tips?
