Can I ask a few questions?  

- What is the OS of the server?
- What compile flags are you using ( ie. -USE_ARCFOUR or any other ones
	added other than the standard ones defined in the OS section of
 	the Makefile )?
- Can you send me a copy of you smb.conf file?
- When is the last time you updated your source code ( ie. ran cvs 
	update -d -P )?

Need a little more information prior to wagering a guess.
