Check the level 10 debug log just before the crash (search for
BUGS) and see if there is a reference to *SMBSERV[ER].  We fixed 
a bug related to this error logging just after the 2.2.3a release.
You might want to try the SAMBA_2_2 cvs code (since you are running debian 
unstable anyways) :-)  There's scripts for creating *.deb in
