smb.log entries

Sorry if this has been asked before, but I tried searching the mailing
list, but the search engine seems to be broken.

I'm getting a few interesting smbd.log entries, and wondered if anybody
knew why.

This just happens, sometimes:
[2000/06/26 21:08:21, 0] lib/util_sec.c:(69)
  Failed to set gid privileges to (-1,-2) now set to (0,0) uid=(0,0)
[2000/06/26 21:08:21, 0] lib/util.c:(2381)
  PANIC: failed to set gid

And this just happens when I try to use Veritas' BackupExec to view the share:
[2000/06/26 21:07:14, 0] smbd/service.c:(213)
  pluto ( couldn't find service $

The share is defined as:
   comment = /u1 Administrative Share
   path = /u1
   valid users = Administrator, Backup
   public = no
   writable = no
   browseable = yes
   printable = no
   level2 oplocks = true

And I get a 'Device Error' when I try to access u1$.  Although it does see it.
Any ideas?
