10.6: Slow SMB browsing of Windows Servers fixed

"use spnego (G)

This variable controls controls whether samba will try to use Simple and Protected NEGOciation (as specified by rfc2478) with WindowsXP and Windows2000 clients to agree upon an authentication mechanism.

Unless further issues are discovered with our SPNEGO implementation, there is no reason this should ever be disabled.

Default: use spnego = yes"

Another point in the man page explicitly says disabling spnego will disable Kerberos.
