NT Server hangs

I've certainly had it once when moving a large directory of many files
around the network. I used to get it occasionally with PCAnywhere as well so
I think it's something to do with the mix of TCP/IP, the custom GINA.DLL and
multiprocessors. I've applied all NT4 Hot Fixes relating to TCP/IP problems
even the Teardrop one which describes my symptoms almost exactly, but it's
still happening.
