	The options sound Ok, can anyone on the list
	chack on the version? I recollect problems we had
	once upon a time with one release of GCC, but it
	was back in the summer...

	Hmmn... The debugging suggestion amounted to 
		compiling with -g
		finding out the process id (pid) with ps
		running dbx  - <pid> , or gdb with its options
		putting a breakpoint on the function
		doing a stack trace
		single-stepping to where the error occurs.
	If you just want to **dodge** it, grab a precompiled
	samba and try it out: if the problem persisst, it's
	almost certainly the kernel, not the application.
