This is the bit I find strange. Even if smbd is "sleeping" it
should still be in a select() where the oplock udp socket is
being listened to for read event status.

Can you give me a stack backtrace of an smbd in this state so
I can discover why it isn't replying to oplock break requests
in this state ?
