[Samba] File transfer corruption (NULL characters)

I am not saying that I doubt you, but I am confused because I did not have
the same corruption when the files were sourced from a Win 2000 server.
Only the NT 4.0 servers, which to me seems that the problem would lie in
Samba's relationship with NT 4.0.

This is a different problem. The compiler on the Alpha is not detecting
64-bit interfaces, so Samba is only being configured as 32-bit. Once
we get our hands on such a system we will be able to fix the configure
scripts to correctly detect the alpha 64-bit  system calls and this will
be solved.
