SubjectCreating files on Samba got weird
(CC'ing to lkml in hope on advise why I've got ksymoops error)

Hello Urban,

My Samba server behaves strangely.
Very frequently (but not always) when I try to create/copy
files from win box to linux samba server it says that file/dir
already exists or that connection terminated. It is indeed exists,
in case of a file it is of zero length. Subsequent copy with
overwrite succeeds.

It seems that smbd dies after it has created dir/file but before
reporting this fact to the client. New smbd gets spawned by inetd

It might be related to newer kernel.
I am willing to track it further.

Samba: 2.2.1a
Kernel: 2.4.10

Also I've got two oopses so far. One of them decoded below
(my first ksymoops, I don't know is it done right on not)

ksymoops 2.4.3 on i686 2.4.10. Options used
-V (default)
-k /proc/ksyms (default)
-l /proc/modules (default)
-o /lib/modules/2.4.10/ (default)
-m /usr/src/linux/ (default)
