[Samba] Samba 2.2.7 eating CPU and memory

Recently I have seen smbd processes starting to consume CPU and memory for no good
reason. So far only 2 clients, both W2K, trigger their corresponding smbd process to
misbehave. Stopping the clients "Print Spooler" makes the problem go away.
There are 4 printers installed on samba and these work fine.

I have tried rebooting the clients, Windows update to latest SW, removing the clients printers.
During all this one of the clients smbd started to behave again, but the
other client still makes samba misbehave. I can't find any clues in the samba logs.

Is this a know bug?
Any ideas on how to proceed?

I am running samba on a RH 7.2 server.
