2.2.0a3 dies with sig11 on openbsd

this is on a clean install of openbsd, with samba-2.2.0alpha3 from
us4.samba.org. the following things are "broken":

	0) linker reports that "[the code] uses mktmp() which is unsafe"
	   and "[the code] uses setreuid() which is deprecated" . perhaps
	   this should be taken into account somehow...

	1) connections.tdb is still doing the magic exploding trick. for
	   some reason, tdb_allocate is growing insanely. interestingly
	   enough, the problem is now reproducible with a win98 client as
	   well as a win2k. i don't have any nt4 boxen handy to test with.
	   i'll be rebuilding with all the debug options on shortly.

	2) smbd is dying with sig11. i doubt this is bad hardware; kernels
	   compile happily for days on end. this might be a compiler issue
	   since both the snapshot and CVS code exhibit the same behavior.
	   i consider the compiler bug unlikely, since other programs like
	   the kernel and dhcpd (and nmbd for that matter) are stable.

to keep the problem with expanding connections.tdb under control, i've
created a 64M filesystem inside a file (vnd is so cool) and  put the var
directory in that. attached are my smb.conf (the machine is a cdrom
server) and a log level 10 output from the misbehaving machine. tcpdump
traces are available on request.
