As these are microsofties, there is mixed case and white space all over
the place. 

Will this have the desired effect? 

case sensitive = no
preserve case = no
short preserve case = no

I'm seeing noticeable degraded performance when swapping from the old
server, with samba 3.0.22, to a new server with double the memory, 50%
more horsepower and 30% faster disks, running 3.2.5. 

Any suggestions will be gratefully received.
