good morning all,

this turned out to be a network problem and not a samba problem.

the input side of one of my routers happened to be throwing CRC and frame
errors when trying to copy the files in question from the one site to the
share on another site across the t1.

after wrestling with the provider for a week, they appear to have found and
corrected the problem.
