The Samba-Bugzilla – Bug 1245
1.0.5 stalls during reading
Last modified: 2005-03-07 20:56:48 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.
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
