Signal 11 (SEGV - Segmentation Fault) after tdb_unpack

I recently newly built Samba 3.0 from CVS, and tried it.
I have a problem with it.  On connection to it - that is, when giving
the password, the connection terminates
In the log file for the machine, after a few things like:

  tdb_unpack(ddffd, 23) -> 19
[2003/02/17 12:06:05, 18] ../source/tdb/tdbutil.c:tdb_unpack(558)
  tdb_unpack(d, 4) -> 4
[2003/02/17 12:06:05, 18] ../source/tdb/tdbutil.c:tdb_unpack(558)
  tdb_unpack(ddffd, 30) -> 26
[2003/02/17 12:06:05, 18] ../source/tdb/tdbutil.c:tdb_unpack(558)
  tdb_unpack(d, 4) -> 4

I have:

[2003/02/17 12:06:05, 0] ../source/lib/fault.c:fault_report(36)
[2003/02/17 12:06:05, 0] ../source/lib/fault.c:fault_report(37)
  INTERNAL ERROR: Signal 11 in pid 49179 (post3.0-HEAD)
  Please read the file BUGS.txt in the distribution
[2003/02/17 12:06:05, 0] ../source/lib/fault.c:fault_report(39)
[2003/02/17 12:06:05, 0] ../source/lib/util.c:smb_panic(1415)
  PANIC: internal error

A problem it is.
That is when trying to connect to a share, both with Windows and
smbclient, after giving the password.

The source is slightly patched - with an auth module and a passdb
module added, but it used to work previously with the same
modifications, and it does not seem related.

I don't know what exactly other information would help, I cannot
really guess a direction, except the tdb routines, which seem to be

A BUGS.txt file does not seem to exist.

Will somewhen go into deeper debugging of it, but I wondered if anyone
has any idea...

  Thank you, any help appreciated,
