slow 'rm -rf' behavior on network drive

I was cleaning house on a fairly slow windows NT network drive and noted
that rm -rf (B20.1 under bash) is vastly slower than using explorer and
the same (copied) large directory.  I didn't have time to do a set of tests,
the time difference is obvious

Any ideas? Enhancements?
