Yes, I have met this a few times with Win95 and Win98 machines. It doesn't
appear to be specific to Samba (the ones I've had a chance to see could not
access any share anywhere) and seems to occur whenever the machine is
booted with bad karma. The best solution I have found so far: Reboot the
Windows machine. AFAICT when this is happening the Windows box does not
make any visible (to the server) attempt to communicate. 

Who is this General Failure, and why is he reading my hard disk?
