timeout_processing(795) -> smbd dies signal 8

I'm having problems with a newly setup samba-2.0 (migrating from
1.9.18p10, which has served us extremely well).

I'm running the server as PDC. Too often, saving files (possibly other
actions, I'm not sure) takes forever and finally gives a timeout. The
server's child process dies signal 8 (see below). Also, the processes
die (same error messages and signal 8) during the night when noone is
using it.

The system is running FreeBSD 3.0-STABLE, and I have installed the
FreeBSD port from /usr/ports/net/samba.

An example (I have lot's of them ):

>From syslog:
Jan 27 17:05:36 trumpet /kernel: pid 46435 (smbd), uid 0: exited on
signal 8 (core dumped)

from sambalog:
[1999/01/27 17:05:36, 0] smbd/process.c:timeout_processing(795)

Here's my global section:

   comment = FreeBSD - Samba %v
   workgroup = Musik
   printing = bsd
   printcap name = /etc/printcap
   load printers = yes
   guest account = nobody
   log file = /var/log/sambalog
   dont descend = /dev,/proc,/root,/stand
   hosts allow = 127.
   veto files = /.AppleDouble/.bin/.AppleDesktop/Network Trash Folder/
   read only = no
   preserve case = yes
   character set = ISO8859-1
   client code page = 850   
   strip dot = yes
   security = user   
   domain master = yes
   domain logons = yes
#   local master = yes
   wins support = yes
   preferred master = yes
   os level = 65
   encrypt passwords = yes
#   unix password sync = True
   passwd program = "/usr/bin/yppasswd"
   public = no     

   time server = yes
   deadtime = 10

; performance tuning:

   socket options = TCP_NODELAY 
   debug level = 2

Configure string:
./configure  --prefix=/usr/local --libdir=/usr/local/etc
--localstatedir=/var \
 --with-swatdir=/usr/local/share/swat --with-netatalk=yes

Any ideas? Any other logs that might be helpful? Some of dying processes
claim to dump core. I'm not sure where that core dump would be, but I
might be able to find if someone want's to look at it.
