I downloaded ltp-full-20080131.tgz few months back and built it and using

I just recreated the problem a while ago against XP server, this time there were
single commands per tcp packet.  So I think the problem is server at some point
just does not respond to cifs client in time (for whatever reasons)
for cifs client to
decide to reconnect declaring server not responding.

I suspect the same for samba server.  In case of samba server, I had turned on
log level to 3 to see whether any messages are logged by samba server as to why
it is not responding to cifs client smb requests but found nothing
significant in the
log file that was generated.
