I start Samba, connect with smbclient, get the pid of the smbd session 
process with smbstatus and then run strace -v -p PID on that pid for a 
few seconds.

Please post your smb.conf and explain in a bit more detail how you're 
connecting and what your tracing.

Btw, there's also security at the next time you run into such a 
nice one... :)
