Have you looked at the nss_ldap issue?
Some versions of nss_ldap < 200 would mask our SIGPIPE handler, causing
smbd to just drop dead if the connection to somthing else (like a DC
etc) died. This could cause all sorts of issues - particuarly timeouts
as the rest of the system waited for the non-existant smbd to reply.
