[Samba] Problem with Samba on Solaris 2.6

Hi All

I downloaded the binary package of Samba 2.2.2 on Friday from one of the 
Samba mirror sites, I think Belgium, and installed it on a Sun E450 
running Solaris 2.6.

Today everything has fallen flat on its face. Unfortunately I am on 
holiday this week so not able to deal with the problem directly, but via 
telephone calls. Apparently what is happening is that smbd is gobbling 
up all the memory, the system is running out of swap (/tmp hits 100%) 
and the machine locks up. As there is a live ERP system running on this 
machine it is causing a bit of a problem. With no one on the machine 
except root smbd starts using up memory, /tmp starts to fill. If smbd is 
restarted memory useage drops and then starts building again. so 
presently samba is stopped on this machine.

Any help, suggestions, etc would be appreciated.
