We get this too, on Samba 1.9.18p8 on Solaris.  So it isn't Digital
Unix specific.  I tracked down the file in question and it turned
out to be a migrated file on an HSM filesystem; so I suppose that
Samba is making some kind of request to the operating system and
complains when the request takes a very long time to be satisfied.
