"fault.c".  INTERNAL ERROR.  you definitely have one else you wouldn't get
"INVALID PIPE HANDLE", due to an smbd closing on you (which maintains
state) and in NT the SMB layer is just an intermediary to the RPC layer.
in nt, if an SMB file handle is open the client-layer thinks it _Stays_
open even if the server drops the connection.  which is a bit dumb.

just the INTERNAL error bit.  or if you see a core file, do a gdb and a
"where" on it, which would be even better.
