OK, I have applied the "use spnego=no" and it seems to have resolved the problem...

Could you describe what this setting is doing?...I haven't been able to find any reference to this setting other than your previous posts telling people to use it...

I need to understand if there are security or performance implications to this setting.

Thanks very much for the assistance with this!...We've been beating our heads on this problem for weeks...Can I paypal you a few $$'s for a frosty beverage of  your choice in thanks?

These connections almost certainly occur on the same TCP/IP socket...I can confirm with a sniffer on Monday if it helps...

I will try the spnego=no and see what happens.

For more details, my original post was:

Thanks for your help!

Any idea if all these connections occur on the same TCP/IP socket?  I
suspect that the issue is the way the NTLMSSP logins occur - we may well
have the negotiations overlap. 

Try 'use spnego = no' on the server, and see if that helps.  I'm trying
to solve this properly with Samba4, correctly handling the state rather
than using various global variables...
