I am actually using a 2.4.3 kernel, rather than 2.4.4. However, I
manually applied the patches to my 2.4.3 kernel, and did some tests -
it appears to work now!

I probably won't be using Samba heavily until next week, but I will let
you know if I see any evidence that the problem is not fixed.

Thank you very much for the fix.
