SubjectRe: Creating files on Samba got weird

You are confusing me with someone that knows something about samba as a
server (or restore_sigcontext :)

If a syscall crashes I think you can't blame smbd for causing strange
effects for the client. I think you should "hunt" the kernel crash first,
if smbd still acts funny when the kernel doesn't crash ask for help on the maillist.

Try repeating the problem with 2.4.13-pre3 (or whatever the latest may be)
and if you can do that post another decoded oops of that, with a subject
containing the words "Oops" and "restore_sigcontext" (if that is still in
the decoded oops).

That will hopefully make your message reach the right audience. You may
also have a look at REPORTING-BUGS for hints on how to list your system

Samba 2.2.2 is just out, but I don't think upgrading will help.

Looks fine, not that it tells me much. It usually disassembles the part
where it crashes and that can be helpful to people that know the code
in question. Not sure why it didn't here, did you edit it out?
