I had similar (but not identical) trouble related somehow to the way
the names were resolved (something with nmdb, perhaps). It's been a
while so the details are hazy at the moment, but a quick fix was to
resolve by IP instead of hostname (like \\\foo\). Does that
make any difference in your situation?
