My apologies, I totally glazed over that bit.

Samba does have some performance issues out of the box (see Solon Luigi
Lutz's thread from 04-10, similar situation but a little bit more later
in the game).  I believe there are a few tuning options for
Samba<->FreeBSD that might be appropriate, esp. wrt. multi-threading
CIFS.  Google seems to show a lot of hits for that.

Sorry again for missing the info you provided.  I hope this helps.
