I just want to report that I am having the same problem.  The dir 
command hangs with 3.0.14a but works fine with 3.0.10.  This happens 
only on one client (Windows XP SP2) but from multiple hosts (all Fedora 
Core 3).  Other Windows running the same XP SP2 do not have this 
problem.  I am currently trying to figure out what is unique about the 
Windows machine that shows the problem.

Below is some lines from dmesg on the host that seem to be related to 
the incident.  Not sure if this info is of any use.
