[Samba] Slow update time for Desktop icons

I've got one user that I just put onto the new Samba 3.0.8 server.  He's on 
WinXP SP1.  He has a ton of icons and things on his desktop (39M worth of 
data according to his profile) but I'm not sure if that is a problem.  When 
he logs in, a few of his icons which point to network applications have only 
the default Windows shortcut image.  If he right-clicks the Desktop and 
clicks "Refresh" the pictures become what they are supposed to be.  I do not 
see this problem with other systems, but this is the only XP SP1 box I have.  
We can't upgrade him because we are waiting on some hardware compatibility 
issues to be resolved.

Is it just that he has too much on his desktop, or is there something I can do 
on either his side or the server side to fix this issue?  It seems somewhat 
similar to other refresh problems of the print queue and Explorer windows.
