Description Dexter Filmore 2004-04-05 10:27:45 UTC
when reading large blocks of data (like iso images) the transfer rate will drop at an uncertain point 
and the client system stalls. (just like the "stall on write" bug, only while reading).
Recompiling kernel with 1.0.4 files solves this problem.
Comment 1 Steve French 2005-03-07 20:56:48 UTC
fixed primarily by changes to fs/cifs/connect.c in socket handling (fix is 
certainly in 2.6.10 kernels or later and patches on website for earlier
