Problem is, they're over the posting limit for the list...

OK, here we go -- shoved in the /temp area of my website:

Samba log (smbd.log): http://www.philpem.me.uk/temp/samba/smbd_log.txt
Samba log (cheetah.log): http://www.philpem.me.uk/temp/samba/cheetah_log.txt
Wireshark trace: http://www.philpem.me.uk/temp/samba/wireshark_log.txt

The machines are:
   Wolf (    -- Server. Ubuntu Server 8.10. MAC=Jetway.
   Cheetah ( -- Client. Windows XP SP3. MAC=ASUSTeK.

The stalling starts at around packet 8882 in the Wireshark log (the gap 
between 8882 and 8883 *is* the stall), which equates to 11:25:43 AM. The stall 
seems to end at 11:26:02 AM (packet 8883). Both machines sync their clocks on 
boot, so the timing should be within a second or so of each other.

If mail bounces, replace "08" with the last two digits of the current year.
