Broken Pipe Errors Samba 3.0.30

We are expierancing some strange things at this site. Clients are windows XP and access files from the Samaba Share. Since they have been upgraded to to new servers and new version of samba, they expierance slowness issues when accessing these files. It is not specific to 1 workstation but all. The errors are below in the log.samba file. We are running HP UNIX 11.23

[2010/02/25 09:14:46, 0] lib/util_sock.c:read_data(533)
read_data: read failure for 4 bytes to client Error = Connection reset by peer

[2010/02/25 09:15:01, 0] lib/util_sock.c:send_smb(760)

The smb.conf file is below


netbios name = SERVENAME

workgroup = NAME

hosts allow =

# General settings. Rarly changed.
server string = ImageServer/s
log file = /var/opt/samba/log.samba
log level = 0
max log size = 1000
#socket options = TCP_NODELAY
socket options =
printing = sysv
name resolve order = host

security = SHARE
local master = No
oplocks = No
public = Yes

Any help would be apreciated in resolveing these errors.
