Default strange problem with links updates in excel

hi,
i run fileserwer on which i've got excel worksheets with links to other
excel sheets. i've got several users, who work on that files. the
problem is:updating links take about 2sec on one computer, 30sec on
dffrent one (with more or less the same hardware configuration) and
90sec on another one (hardware is a bit slower here, but not much). i'm
using ms office xp SBE patched with office-sp3 on all computers
(without that patch updating links is even slower).
basically: it's not a problem in worksheets (than it'd be slow on all
computers), it's not also a problem with network connection (i have
fast transfers when i normal copy files from serwer into workstations,
besides - i see that excel takes 100% of cpu during that updates, so
it's definitly not waiting for data) and it's not problem with office
release (since i use the same version on each workstation).
i'm pretty out of ideas what can be wrong.. maybe something with
office's configuration? or maybe someting in windows?

A guess would be that the 30 sec computer has an access to the files
that is very slightly longer (ie, routed through one more step, or is
set to Full/Half duplex instead of Full/Full, virus scanning does/does
not include network files etc) than the 2 sec version.

If you time-trial a 50 mb file read and save, do you also notice the
same ratio for speed ?
