If you don't see any drops at your firewall then think about MTU size. 
Windows shares use large maximum segment sizes and are on of the first
symptoms when you introduce a new VPN.

My MTU setting in /etc/ppp/options.pptpd is currently set to 1450.  I
wouldn't imagine that this is too low, but as this is my first VPN
server, I'm open to suggestions.  However, I believe this to be a
problem with routing the appropriate data through the server.
