The Novell Client has adjustable performance and cache settings which I tweaked and which didn't make any difference.

The settings were ...

File caching On -> Off
 - Controls whether the client will cache files locally

File Commit Off -> On
 - Controls whether buffers flushed by an application are committed to disk on the server. Setting this value to On will ensure data integrity at the expense of performance by ensuring file buffers are committed to disk on the server when an application flushes its file buffers
Lazy Close Off --- Off
 - Delays the File Close on the network allowing the file to be reopened without accessing the network.

For my next step I might try to install a VirtualBox machine on the laptop and see what that does. I'll start with a 32bit WinXP SP3 with a Novell client so it can see the network.

I want to pension-off my desktop XP machine and reluctantly replace it with the Win 7 laptop but I can't live without Tortoise.
