Copying files off Samba Server - freezes/very slow - FreeBSD

I have just upgraded the hardware of our development server. I thought that our file server used to be slow due to slow hardware, but now that we have upgraded I am a bit puzzled. Samba seems to slow or hang (top reports smbd CPU usage as 40%) when files are copied off the server using windows explorer on the client. Can anyone sugeest a reason for this behaviour? Thanks, Gareth...

    Default Copying files off Samba Server - freezes/very slow

    Let us take a look at you smbd.conf, that might help.

    What version of Samba and FreeBSD? I was seeing the same thing on a 5.3 box
    with samba 3. I didn't look into the problem that much, since the box was a
    temporary solution and samba wasn't that big a deal.

    I did upgrade to 5.4-PRERELEASE about a week ago, and also upgraded samba. It
    helped a bit, but didn't solve the problem. It did reduce the amount of CPU
    and the length of time it monopolized the CPU by about 40% 

    Like I said, I didn't look into it too much since I had a new RedHat box on
    order and just assumed the box was overloaded. But to hazard a guess, I'd say
    there might be some weird reaction between FreeBSD 5.3 and samba 3.
