[Samba] File copying under WIN98

with the Samba3.0.12 release i encountered the following problem :
when i try to copy a file from a samba share to the local disk then the 
process hangs with the windows-message
"Preparing to copy" (my translation from the german message).
In a WIN98-DOS-Windows the copy command hangs too, but the file is created.
The copying from my WIN-XP HOME works.
My previous installed version 3.0.9 worked fine with the same configuration 

does anyone have this problem too - and maybe a solution except reinstalling 
old samba ?
