I've posted a (hopefully reasonable) summary of the on-the-wire traffic 
as seen with Ethereal. What are you expecting to gain from tcpdump here?

As for samba logs, I don't see any particularly suspicious entries, but 
I'm not sure what to look for either :-/. After all, if the client is 
asking for 1 byte writes, Samba just serves it. If anyone wants to look 
into my level 10 debug log, I'll be happy to provide it (off-list).

I'm not seeing any network packet loss nor packets dropped by iptables. 
WINS browsing is working fine from my perspective, but I'm unsure how 
this is releated.

Further comments welcome.
