Novell IntraNetware Client & PDC crashes

I can't offer any help, but I can confirm that we have the same problem.
It is important to note that the Intranetware client *did* work back in the
May-ish CVS's, so something has changed in Samba.  Jeremy has asked me for
a packet trace, but I don't have the right tools to do this from a thrid
machine, and I can't figure out how to do a packet trace from the client
machine, since it is the one that will crash.  Maybe if you have a way of
doing this, you could send a trace to jeremy and they can fix it?
