I'm guessing that /proc is accessible from some share?
You probably shouldn't export / directly, if that is what you are doing.
Or set "follow symlinks = no" in the smb.conf.
I think you have a client that is trying to search things in it and finds
an infinite recursion of symlinks (look at the contents of /proc). There
are limits on the length of a pathname so stat() will eventually fail.
