[Samba] Can only see files one level deep

I'm having a problem that I'm not sure is related.  OSX 10.6.3, Centos 
5.5, Samba Version 3.0.33-3.28.el5

Sometimes when I try to browse to a directory it just stalls out with 
the spinning gear.  Not always the top level or a consistent depth, and 
it doesn't seem to matter if there are a dozen files or thousands in the 
directory.  Sometimes if I walk away for an hour or so it'll still be 
spinning when I get back, sometimes it'll finally be showing my 
directory listing.

I've just discovered(?) that quitting the Finder and restarting it 
solved the problem in at least one instance, so try that and report back...

[I'm running iptables, and can't disable it, FWIW.]
