I know that I have discovered that newer versions of OpenClient are
much happer with TCP instead of NLWNSCK.  Try removing the entry using
dsedit and re-create it.  Does it still use NLWNSCK, or does the entry
now have TCP instead?  I believe we had some sort of similar problem
when we upgrade from OpenClient 11 to 11.1(.x).
