Try not running samba server.  It has been known to cause all sorts of
different problems, from minor to major, on some systems, although it
will also run quite on many other systems without any apparent ill
effects.  No-one knows why it does what it does, or why its effects
(or lack of effects) are so variable and unpredictable.
