1)      We are facing memory issue with using samba-3.0.37 and log shows the following message continuously.

>> nmbd:@@@@@PANIC: failed to create UCS2 buffer
>> nmbd:@@@@@PANIC: failed to create UCS2 buffer
>>nmbd:@@@@@PANIC: failed to create UCS2 buffer

      This issue occurred when we continuously access the fileshare (say more than 1000 times). We are analysing how to relate
this issue with nmbd. But, wanted to confirm, Is samba-3.0.37 has any memory issues?

2)      While analysing network capture for the above issue, SMB Client sends the "NT QUERY SECURITY DESC" request while accessing FileShare? On which scenario, this request is sent to SMB server since it is not seen in normal file share access?
