That doesn't change the crashing behaviour. Till now
the only thing that DOES change the crashing behaviour
is to set the debug level to 5 or above -- obviously not
a proper solution.

Let me note that until last summer the clients were
sitting on a Novell network and did NOT experience
such behaviour -- which of course makes me believe
it is a SAMBA problem....
