Hello, I am reposting this messages, because I did not get any reply,
and frankly, I am rather desparate... I also found out some additional
info (at the end)

I get a HUGE amount of the following errors:

In /var/log/samba/log.smbd

[2003/04/28 12:11:55, 0] rpc_server/srv_samr_nt.c:_samr_query_aliasmem(2626)
  _samr_query_aliasmem: Not yet implemented.

In /var/log/syslog

Apr 28 12:25:14 iuamtg smbd[23473]: [2003/04/28 12:25:14, 0] rpc_server/srv_samr
Apr 28 12:25:14 iuamtg smbd[23473]:   _samr_query_aliasmem: Not yet implemented.

And when I see huge, I mean huge:

grep smbd /var/log/syslog | grep "Apr 28 11:" | wc -l

grep _samr_query_aliasmem /var/log/samba/log.smbd | grep "04/28 11" | wc -l

Obviously this is not only rather unpleasant, but also pretty worrying... 

All these errors come from one user (WindowsXP). 
The server is samba 2.2.8a on a debian woody box.

ADDENDUM: The application that seems to be causing this is LinCVS  
(both 1.1.2 and 1.1.6), though it must be a combination of factors,
because several other users use WindowsXP and LinCVS as well.

Please, any suggestions how to solve this problem, track it down,
or at least avoid the logs to be filled up.
