Run away number of smbd children

I'm new to this list. I'm running samba-3.0.26a using AD on a Solaris 9
box (uname -a = 'Generic_122300-09 sun4u sparc SUNW,Netra-T12') compiled
with gcc-3.3.2 . We average around 600 to 800 smbd processes at any
given time. Recently, however, the number of smbd processes grow up
into the thousands and the load on the box ... well I've never seen the
load grow to 5400+, and that was just today. This spawning condition
seems to be load related, but even that assumption is intermittent. We
do have samba answering to a cname not an aname. Samba rocks on this
box most of the time, btw :D
I neglected to attach cores or a log level of 10 captures as I wanted to
ensure this was the right place to post this.
gcc's compile options:
Configured with: ../gcc-3.3.2/configure --prefix=/usr/local/gcc-3.3.2
--enable-shared --enable-threads=posix --enable-languages=c,c++
Thread model: posix
./configure --with-smbwrapper --with-quotas --with-automount
--prefix=/usr/local/samba-3.0.26a --with-ldap --with-ads
Thanks in advance!
