I have a strange problem that I cannot identify. I have mounted a FreeNAS CIFS share in my network and it seems to work perfectly fine on other machines Gentoo server (no GUI), Ubuntu HTPC, and even a VM of Windows 8.1 on my main desktop.

However, copying files from my Gentoo desktop to the CIFS share has some problems that only show up while I am using a file manager like Thunar or PCManFM. When copying from the file managers, I get a very low throughput of about 17MB/s to the mounted location under /mnt. Performing a copy of the same file from the command line using `cp` gives me my entire gigabit throughput of ~100MB/s. Why the difference and how to fix this? I am running Thunar 1.6.7 (upgraded from 1.6.3 to see if that fixes the issue)

My CIFS mount fstab line:

Code:

//freenas/share      /mnt/freenas/share   cifs   credentials=/root/.cifs-john5788,defaults,uid=1000,gid=1000,cache=none 0 0


I'll note that my HTPC with Ubuntu does not have this same problem when copying files using PCManFM.
