Is the Novell client still installed?

I have had MAJOR slowdowns when initially browsing anything on Samba, be
it printers or shares, when the Novell client is still installed and
functional. I've posted a couple of messages to list, but never really
found the solution. If I remove the Novell client, or use a machine
without it, browsing Samba is super quick and there are no issues. As
soon as that client is installed, I notice the slowdown...
