Its more than that probably.  My guess is that a change
notify is not getting sent back to the client with the correct
jobid.  (which could be explained by one of the buig fixes
in 3.0.2 or by the fact that the smbd crash and the change
notify handle has become invalid).

This could be bug #660 (which was fixed post 3.0.1.
