[Samba] Sluggish samba...no change

Thanks to those who responded to my previous post. I have
tried all suggestions and found no change.
A quick review:
Samba 3.0.11, OpenBSD 3.6, hub connected net, no routers
or firewalls involved. An Audiotron music box and a
WindowsXP machine in addition to the OpenBSD box.
And the issues were the same when Samba 2.x and OBSD
3.4 were installed.
Windows media player on the XP box plays music files
(.wav) from the Samba share fine, but the Audiotron finds the
share, but shows "buffering" for about 2 minutes then doesn't
play. It sees the share, finds all the music files, but can load
But if the Audiotron is directed to find a share and play music
from a share on the XP box, it plays the files fine.
Can anyone give me some ideas of what would be different
about the the way a dedicated network device and the XP
box would communicate with the Samba box?
I did note that when the Audiotron connects to the Samba
box, Samba initially generates a log file smbd.192.168.x.x
and then a second smbd.atron (where 192.168.x.x is it's ip
address and atron is its name). Is this a clue?
Socket options in smb.conf made no apparent changes in
workgroup = MACHOME
server string = Parker103
hosts allow = 192.168.x.x 192.168.y.y 127.0.0.1
load printers = yes
log file = /var/log/smbd.%m
log level = 1
max log size = 50
security = user
socket options = TCP_NODELAY SO_KEEPALIVE
max xmit = 65536
dns proxy = no
encrypt passwords = yes
comment = Music storage
path = /music
read only = no
browseable = yes
public = yes
guest ok = yes
veto oplock files = /*.wav/
