Probably the only way to find out the problem is wireshark and carefully looking 
at the packets to see what causes it to an extra round trip. It may be due to a 
poor MS-Window CIFS client implementation.

The problem is that I am not a CIFS/Samba expert, which is required to 
understand the above.
