8.5MB/s here from both (an old) smbclient and Winders 2K/XP.  But, of course,
you already knew that from my previous posts.  Just getting it into this thread
for your tally.  I'm hoping I can eventually figure out how to get wire speed
out of smbd 3.2.5, or Debian's successor rev.  I kinda feel greedy, with you
only getting ~4MB/s and me [demanding] 11MB/s.  :(
