We use the latest (2.2.4) version of Samba, and still this
comes up every now and then (quite rare though). I've tried
to setup "nt acl support=no" to the [Profiles] share, but
dunno if that helped any.

Luckily this is very rare, and Samba is working smoothly.
Thank you all, especially the developers!
