One problem that I had several times and isnt related to samba was with 
bad memory. Sometimes the OS installs without problems, can be be used 
without problems, but sometimes it corrupts some files, this happens 
only when DMA is enabled, I dont know if it can apply to the server too, 
but is one thing to try.

On the server you can use md5 to check the files after copy them locally 
and on the client you can use QuickSFV.
