´╗┐Thank you very much Michele. Because it's not trivial for me to introduce DNS for the local Samba server, I just tried accessing the share by typing its static IP address: \\192.168.0.13\sharename.
I still get the same delay.
Perhaps it's not DNS resolution that's causing that?

Last week week my customer call me for the same problem where I
installed an "old" version of samba (like yours) without local dns.
After some tests, a simple bind9 + master local zone and reversed one
solved the problem.
I don't know further technical details, but I presume that 7 _need_ a
reply from a dns. If it not find a good one, before gone to timeout and
switch to wins resolution, it took *a lot of time*
