[Samba] Too slow to open shares.

I tried ethereal to grab the network traffic as well, before I open the
share I just found lots of 'broadcast message' to ask who have the IP
address of that invalid entry in DNS.

M<y suggestion is to grab a network trace using ethereal
and see what the traffic looks like.
