Hi Rob Shinn,

Thanks for your suggestion, I will probably setup a testing environment 
to know if the problem come from network component or the server it 
self. It's will be easy because the Samba server is a Ubuntu guest 
running on VMWareServer.

I will keep you inform If I find anything strange in log file.
