[Samba] NFS mounted samba share

    I'm sharing an NFS mounted directory via samba. When a client 
connect to the share, he can browse it fine, but any attempt to read 
data, like copying or looking that the file's properties results in a 
lockup on the client, and an eventual time out. On the server, a lock ( 
DENY_NONE  0x120089    RDONLY     NONE ) is created an never goes away, 
even after the client as disconnected.

- I can login the server and read data just fine from that NFS mount 
point, but samba can't.
- I can access other NFS mounted ( off another server ) via samba  just 

if I use smbclient as the CIFS client, the error is:

Error Call timed out: server did not respond after 20000 milliseconds 
closing remote file

Any help would be appreciated !

Samba server setup:



        username map = /etc/samba/smbusers
        passwd program = /usr/bin/passwd %u
        wins server = x.x.x.x
        pam password change = yes
        printing = lprng
        dns proxy = no
        encrypt passwords = yes
        time server = yes
        socket options = TCP_NODELAY SO_RCVBUF=8192 SO_SNDBUF=8192
        printcap name = /etc/printcap
        password server = *
        obey pam restrictions = yes
        security = domain
        server string = abc
        workgroup = abc.abc
        log file = /var/log/samba/%m.log
        netbios name = FOO
        load printers = yes
        netbios aliases = BAR
