problem with write_socket_data and write_socket

I got the following problem with samba 2.0.6 running on OpenBSD 2.7

[2001/01/23 12:46:50, 0]
  write_socket_data: write failure. Error = Broken pipe
[2001/01/23 12:46:50, 0]
  write_socket: Error writing 4 bytes to socket 6: ERRNO = Broken pipe
[2001/01/23 12:46:50, 0]
  Error writing 4 bytes to client. -1. Exiting

As far as I have been able to gather from the archives, this is a problem
with revers DNS?

Is there no other way to fix this than by setting up reverse dns?

On our local network we havn't even got forward DNS set up. We use WINS,
but I'm not sure if the ones that set up the NT servers and the domain
have done it correctly.

Anyone got any tips?
