Delay when saving a document in CIFS folder

With Alfresco 1.3.0 on Windows XP SP2, I have access to the Alfresco repository through CIFS, and am able to read, create, rename files sucessfully.
But editing a file, and saving it causes an idle period of about 90 secs. During this period, the explorer.exe process is frozen and nothing seems to move (nearly no CPU consumption).
Finally, the save operation ends succesfully.

Strangely, this happens only when editing files on CIFS folders on the same machine the Alfresco server runs on. When accessing CIFS folders remotely, everything works fine.

nbtstat -n gives :
Local Area Connection:
Node IpAddress: [0.0.0.0] Scope Id: []

    No names in cache

Wireless Network Connection:
Node IpAddress: [192.168.1.8] Scope Id: []

                NetBIOS Local Name Table

       Name               Type         Status
    ———————————————
    GROMIT         <00>  UNIQUE      Registered
    WORKGROUP      <00>  GROUP       Registered
    GROMIT         <20>  UNIQUE      Registered
    WORKGROUP      <1E>  GROUP       Registered
    WORKGROUP      <1D>  UNIQUE      Registered
    ..__MSBROWSE__.<01>  GROUP       Registered
    GROMIT_A       <20>  UNIQUE      Registered
    GROMIT_A       <00>  UNIQUE      Registered

I adapted file-servers.xml to my network
<broadcast>255.255.255.0</broadcast>
and tried changing this element
<Win32NetBIOS api="netbios"/>
without success.

Any idea of a possible cause of the problem ?
