Question winXP sp1 vs sp2 with samba / debian

okay, I have been fighting this issue for days now, and I have googled every error message I can get my hands on. All to no avail.

here's the setup:

Debian box (sarge, 2.4.27 kernel picked since 2.6 kernels *do not* like promise 20265 ide controllers), no domain, smbd. 3 shared drives.
d1200:~# uname -a
Linux d1200 2.4.27-2-686 #1 Thu Jan 20 11:10:41 JST 2005 i686 GNU/Linux
d1200:~# smbd -V
Version 3.0.14a-Debian

WinXP sp1/no-sp:
add a network shared drive (right click my computer -> Map Network Drive... enter info, Reconnect at Logon, save password..)
The drive mounts. Reading/Writing all files, no problems. Fast access. All good. Never any problems. reboot, shares come back mounted properly with proper permissions and access.

WinXP sp2:
add a network shared drive (right click, map, enter info, reconnect, save passwd...)
The drive mounts. Read/Write files just fine. Then within a couple minutes, I start getting errors from WindozeXP:
Windows Explorer
G:\ is not accessible
Logon Failure: unknown user name or bad password.
so, since windoze errors are the most useful errors ever. I turn to my smb logs. I find for each shared drive, the following pair of lines:

[2005/05/05 03:53:44, 1] smbd/service.c:make_connection_snum(642)
xp1700 ( connect to service junk initially as user doug (uid=0, gid=1000) (pid 5731)

[2005/05/05 03:56:16, 1] smbd/service.c:close_cnum(830)
xp1700 ( closed connection to service junk

the first line is basically when winxp sp2 boots. The second message is a few minutes later, when the share decides to stop working. This is all the logs show.

So why is sp2 closing the connection, when sp1 (or no service pack) doesn't?

As for my sp2 configuration, I am on an internal network, and as such, I completely disable windows firewall in sp2. As for the sp1 configuration, it is completely up to date with windows update patches. It is only missing the actual sp2.

for kicks, I tried accessing one of the shared drives from a win2k server machine. It can access the drive with proper permissions no problem... and it doesn't time out.
