> I am using Enterprise Samba 3.0.30 on RHEL 4 to share a directory of
> images between two servers. I'm using CIFS to mount the share.  Both
> servers expose the images over the web via Apache2.
> On the server with the mounted share, when I load a page with many
> images embedded, some of the images load only partially -- some part
> of the image draws normally, and then the rest is just blank.  On the
> server with the images directly on it, this problem does not occur.
> Some details about the images that don't finish loading on the server
> using the share:
>  * The problem occurs in Firefox 2 and in Opera 9, but the images load
> normally in IE.
>  * The problem only occurs the first time you load the image.  If you
> then hit reload on the page to get the images from the cache, the
> images load fine.  However, if you "shift-reload" to force a reload
> from the server, the problem occurs again.
>  * The same images always fail in exactly the same place.
> I had a very similar setup working using Ubuntu Gutsy, but of course
> that was a different version of the kernel (2.6.22-14-server vs
> 2.6.9-67.ELsmp) and of Samba (3.0.26a vs 3.0.30).
> I've been experimenting with increasingly more esoteric settings in
> the smb.conf and in the options I am using to mount the share via
> cifs, but without any luck.  Does anyone have some insight into why
> the combination of a certain browser + the fact that the files are
> coming over a cifs share might lead to this kind of behavior?  And,
> more importantly, what can I try to resolve it?
