I was wondering if anyone might have any information on why
directory listsings on a network appliance box would fail.

Here's (what I hope is) the relevant information.

netapp release  number: 5.3.6R2
samba Version: 2.0.7-3
arch: i386
my os: debian/gnu linux (2.2)
Nov 21 09:42:38 localhost kernel: smb_proc_readdir_long: Looping in FIND_NEXT??
Nov 21 09:42:38 localhost kernel: smb_refill_dircache: readdir failed, result=-5

I've been hunting around on deja and what not and haven't really
seen much helpful info. 

Thanks for any help.
