Thanks for the tip, but yes, I have read it and it is not the problem in
this case. 

I have gotten a patch from Jeremy of the samba team that fixed the
signal 6 problems (it had to do with rotating log files). 

I still see timeouts though. The users experiences 30 secs of hang, and
then it comes back. It might be related to file locking; I'm not sure.
