We have been running SAMBA 1.9.17 and 1.9.18 with AIX 4.1.4,
AIX 4.1.5, AIX 4.2.1 servers for half a year with no such problems.  
Have you tried out Windows 95 PCs with more recent updates, such as
Service Pack 1 or OSR2 ?  We don't use any LMHOSTS files on the
PC, just browsing with a SAMBA WINS server, maybe that's why it
works for us ?

Your AIX box isn't licensed to run the AIX C compiler.  You better
fix that, or use GCC.  We have used the latest AIX C compiler,
xlC version, also using the -O flag, and we have no problems
compiling at all.
