If you can reproduce this behavior using local access or ssh access (taking samba out of the equivalent) I would take it over to freebsd-fs. The seekdir is indeed fixed. If not, increase verbosity for smbd, maybe it spits out a hint why it is taking so long (smells like locking). -- Mel Problem with today's modular software: they start with the modules and never get to the software part. _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-questions-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
