You may want to check to see if you have "dns proxy = no" in your
Samba config file. If it is set to yes, you may be experiencing DNS
lookup delays when first connecting. Though I would expect something
in the order of 90 seconds for DNS lookup delay when I can not find
the host it is trying to look up. You should also look in
/var/log/samba to see if the logs there say anything helpful.
