File transfer to windows hangs
Possibly this is since an upgrade from edgy to feisty, I am not exactly sure.
On my linux host I have a vmware running windows xp as guest. This xp mounts my home folder on the host using samba. It also mounts other samba shares on other linuxes.
In some cases when I try to transfer a file from linux to xp, the file transfer hangs - the destination file on windows is created but absolutely no data is moved (in windows the "Copying" dialog is shown (with the fancy animation going on) but the progess bar remains in the "0" position). After a few minutes windows says "The specified network name is no longer available" and the transfer is aborted.
If meanwhile I strace the smbd process handling this connection, it hangs in this syscall:
myhost:~% sudo strace -p 9846
Process 9846 attached - interrupt to quit
- Browsing the directories work without problems
- Browsing and transferring files from other samba shares (on other computers) also work
- Transferring the problematic file using smbclient running on the host also works.
