[Samba] bug report

I have found a small bug in the samba server. My /etc/mtab file was not
readable by the samba process and when a client (smbclient) did a 'ls' on
a share, it could not get the volume size and segfault-ed. Here is an
extract from log.smbd:

-----------------BEGIN LOG EXTRACT---------------------------

  PANIC: internal error
-----------------END LOG EXTRACT------------------------------

I run a SuSE 8.2 server with the latest updates, smbd -V reports
'Version 2.2.7a-SuSE'.

If you need further information I could probably replicate the problem,
but my skills in program debugging are limited. I hope that this
information is sufficient in finding the problem.

Regards, alexm
