Can you reproduce this consistently?

In order to track this down, recompile smbd with debug support
(env CFLAGS=-g ./configure) and add 

	panic action = /bin/sleep 90000

to your smd.conf and watch for the error in log.smbd.
Once you see smbd die, attach a gdb session to it

	gdb <path to smbd> <pid of dead process>

and send the backtrace.

Alternately, you can make available a level 10 debug log form
the misbehaving smbd session.
