Please check whether tdbtorture runs correctly on this machine. You
don't need to shutdown Samba to test this. Make sure that tdb is
compiled with mmap when you build tdbtorture.

I doubt it. I think there are two likely causes:

1) you are somehow managing to run the old smbd without the tdb
   patch. (no insult intended, its just this sort of mistake
   ends up explaining a rather large proportion of bug reports, so I
   have to ask)

2) there is some other way in which tdb depends on mmap/io coherency.

I'd concentrate on stressing tdb with tdbtorture on this machine and
see if the test.tdb grows to huge sizes. 

Cheers, Tridge
