[Samba] Unusable performance over WAN (part 2)

Hi all,
Disregard my previous posts, I've consolidated everything here.
I'm having terrible performance issues with samba over a WAN
(point-to-point T1 link).
Doing a copy of a 2MB file from a samba server to a linux client
running smbclient takes over 5 minutes.
SCPing the same file takes seconds.

The server is running samba version 3.0.25c with kernel

I've put up a set of debugging logs at:

Inside are 3 files:
smb.conf - the configuration of the samba server
log.agard - the level 10 debug log of the copy from samba
samba-tcpdump.log - a tcpdump log from the client side of the copy

Any help to fix this issue would be greatly appreciated since the file
server is pretty unusuable over the WAN.
If you need any more information, please let me know. It is imperative
that I find out what's happening here.
