I've fixed the BSOD problem.

Interestingly, it looks like it was a NTws bug, not a Samba bug! NTws
sends lots of TRANS2_QFILEINFO requests with info level 0x109 on the
files in the profiles directory. Samba obediently answered them.

Testing against a NT server I see that NT _refuses_ such queries! I
suspect they got this same BSOD and "fixed" it in the server by
refusing the queries rather than fixing the client code. 

I changed Samba to also refuse these queries. No more BSOD. Although
there are a pile of query/refuse packets on the wire, just like there
is with NT server ...

it's a funny old protocol :)
