	I did a similar test last week with a borrowed lab,
	and didn't get things to break, but rename is slower
	than I'd like. The slowness was ufs, not Samba, though.

	Did the clients die with "... has done an illegal operation" ?
	My failures were illegal operations, and were specific
	to a the same machines in most cases.
