We were hit HARD with the fcntl lock problem. It was taking users
10 minutes to log in to a PC (loading profile). We were using 2.2.4
and 2.2.5, Solaris 8. We dropped back to samba 2.0.6 to "fix" the
problem - it now takes seconds to load the profile.
I just checked the SunSolve site. For bug report 4700402, they say it
is closed, and say the work around is to compile with --with-spinlocks.
