[Samba] Long delays when launching programs for the first time in my Windows 7 Profile (Samba 3.4.3 as PDC)

Hello dear Samba users!


My setup:



- openSUSE 11.2 - 64 bit

- Samba 3.4.3 running as PDC. Roaming profiles active

- DNS Server (bind 9)

- DHCP-Server, which dynamically updates the zone files of the DNS



- Windows 7 Professional - 64 bit, english


My problems:



The first time when I login a new user on the client, it takes very long
(about 40 minutes!) until the login process is completed and the new profile
is been created

The next logins everything works perfect.



When I am in the user profile and start a new program for the first time, it
takes again VERY long until this program finally launches (approx 5
minutes). Until then the system feels partially locked-up (many programs do
not respond). When the program finally launched, everything works fast again

All later launches of the program are performed with normal speed


Has anybody got any solutions for this problem or any idas? 

If you need further information please do not hesitate to ask!


Thanks for your time
