Hi Jerry,

That looks exactly like my problem -- tons of open FDs but only on directories, 
not files.

Unfortunately I haven't made any further progress in troubleshooting this. I 
walked through the debugging messages and matched them to whats in the source. 
It seems like it should be working. But, I don't do much C/C++ coding, so 
probably not worth much. I did verify it only happened on kernel 2.4 (well, 
least 2.4.18 & 2.4.19). And, I'm seeing it in Samba 2.2.x and the 3.x alpha. I 
didn't try the 2.0 stuff...but, I would guess it occurs there too. I think I 
remember seeing the owner change from the windows user to root. Other than 
that, I can't think of anything else that might help.

Let me know there is anything I can do to help fix this!

Thanks again!
