I believe I have found the problem to be Zone Alarm!
I ran across this forum post:
After uninstalling zone alarm, the problem hasn't re-occurred.  I must
have been running a slightly different version on that machine than on
others, which may explain why it worked fine on every other machine
except this one.  Anyway thanks for the input.  I'll definitely take a
look at that profiles entry in my smb.conf.  Your suggestion does seem
to be more correct.
