samba issues? drops?

I have a new install of 3.5 w/Samba installed from the ports. The only thing I am using Samba for is to serve files to my AudioTron. I was doing this from this same box running Gentoo Linux before. The issue is that running the server on OBSD is way to slow. Copying any thing over takes ages. The AudioTron skips like mad. Let me stress that this worked fine on the same box with the same cables under Linux. I have done some testing and here is what I got:

Transfer of 500MB file to and from the OBSD box from a Mac via FTP.

524288000 bytes received in 00:59 (8.39 MB/s)
524288000 bytes sent in 01:00 (8.25 MB/s)

netstat -ni

sk0 1500 <Link> 00:0d:88:6c:ff:22 459546 0 630141 0 0
sk0 1500 192.168.64/ 459546 0 630141 0 0



workgroup = POD
server string = OpenBSD 3.5/Samba
hosts allow =
log file = /var/log/smbd.%m
max log size = 50
security = user
socket options = TCP_NODELAY
interfaces =
local master = yes
domain master = yes
preferred master = yes
wins support = yes
dns proxy = no

   comment = Music Share for AudioTron
   path = /data/Music
   writable = no
   browseable = yes
   public = yes

Trying to copy the same file via Samba up or down takes days.

Is there some know tuning for Samba under OBSD? I have seen that other people run it just fine. I have ruled out any hardware issues. Also I tested steaming the same file from the Mac via Samba to the AudioTron with no issues (The Mac is running Samba 3.02). They all plugged into the same switch. The FTP test shows that the NIC is fine. It is very much just Samba on this box. I have tested with and without PF running.

I have not used OpenBSD since 3.0 and decided to switch back for this server/firewall. I am getting a bit frustrated. Help please! (BTW, for those that read about my PF issues I have found that it is the NIC - drive vr0. I am buying a new one - Intel- Thanks!) Maybe I should try to compile Samba 3.x on this box?
