Yes, it's illumos/SmartOS system running Samba. It's possible there's some kind of bug either in kernel or in user-land programming. If you guys can point out a few critical points to put debug statements, I would be more than happy to debug the issue here.

It also may be a Solaris/Illumos/OpenIndiana kernel bug. I haven't heard of any such issues on Linux/FreeBSD.

I wouldn't regress to tdb-messaging just yet :-).
