SAMBA_2.2 and spinlocks

when configuring the actual SAMBA_2.2 from cvs to use spinlocks I get a
segmentation fault calling smbstatus. smbstatus crashes when opening the tdb
and clearing in there any spinlocks (??).
So my question is, if the use of spinlocks is depreciated ?
When using spinlocks and changing the answer of this_is_smp() to 1 we
encountered no longer any problems with a dual-PIII server and Visual FoxPro
application which crashes regulary on previous version of 2.2.x
