    That other machine is not compiled with bigmem, I assume.

    The smbfs cache code in 2.4.0 doesn't work with bigmem. For now disable
    bigmem or don't use smbfs, it's oopsing all the time.

    Rainer Mager reported the same thing yesterday ("Oops with 4GB memory
    setting in 2.4.0 stable" if you want to read the thread).

    I am currently looking into this ... what kind of server are you
    connecting to? win2k/NT4/9x? It is easier to test with those than the more
    exotic OS/2 & NetApp.
