No network captures yet, I was kind of waiting for the fqdn to be fixed as I
was thinking it was related.  I think I'll have time to do it this weekend,
I'll load Wireshark on a Windows 7 VM and report back.

Also, I can open two different Explorer Windows (though if you quickly
navigate against both you may notice it) with two different aliases, what
matters is data transfer.  If I'm copying/reading data on alias1 and I start
another on alias2, alias1 gets disconnected.  Same with writes.  I can
positively say, this never occurred with OS b129-134.  I first noticed it in
b134a, then Solaris 11 Express, and now OpenIndiana b151a.

Its probably related to the various SMB changes with Windows 7/2K8 so I'll
try to spin an XP VM up too (I don't have a physical XP box anymore)
