Hi Ignacio,

Just to confuse matters a bit more... :-)   

I experienced exactly the same behaviour on my Slackware 3.4 server,
but *not* on a Red Hat 5.1 server.  I subsequently tested it on various
hardware & software combinations and concluded that the only platform
that does not crash the Windows clients is RH 5.1 -- I still have to
test Solaris though.
