[Samba] Problem using automount enabled samba 3.0.14a on Solaris 8

I have lately experienced a rather peculiar problem, details follows:

Trying to minimise the number of samba servers, I have compiled in 
support for automounting in a Solaris 8 version of samba 3.0.14a.
Amongst others, this server mounts a filesystem from a Solaris 6 box by 
request. The samba server mounts the Solaris 6 filesystem fine, but when 
the user tries to access the directory symlinked from his homeshare (a 
NetApp share which works just fine), Windows Explorer freezes and have to 
be killed.
The same procedure completes OK when using a Sgi samba server, so this 
makes me believe this is a samba Solaris only issue.
Anyone able to help me with this one ?
