[Samba] SMB share/MS networking + Novell = major lag

I am hoping someone else has found a solution for this:
"A Delay Occurs When You Open a Mapped Network Drive on a Novell
NetWare or UNIX NFS Server"

This delay is usually 25sec for any mapped drive or network printer
when accessed the first time since timeout.  Painful for users who need
novell and samba shares.  (Windows XP sp2, exists on Novell clients 4.9 
sp1a, sp1b, sp2, & latest 4.91)

I have tried all of the registry "fixes" to no avail.

Has anyone found a resolution?
