Firstly, any core dump (or sig11) is a Samba bug - even if MS's SMS caused
it. Could you please try out a later Samba version (2.2.2 is current
stable)? Also, there is a MS KnowlegeBase article about a similar thing
to this - I think the SMS stuff will mess will the NT machine running it
as well. Search for 'Samba' should find it.
