[Samba] 2.2.6 leaking session ids?

i checked my error log and it is not recording any core dumps for smbd.

i do not think it is crashing since the smbd seems to keep running and
trying to grant access to different shares, but the user ends up with only
a couple or none depending on if it can get a sessionid.

i'll reimplement tomorrow and take a stronger log level...
