Hi again 

A few weeks ago i posted to the list about this problem, but there was
no reply. Since then I have upgraded to latest 2.2.x CVS(yesterday) and the problem 
is still there. 

For unknown reason smbd leaks memory and eats CPU(top reports RSS=68MB in less than 10 hours
and CPU load up to 20%). So far 2 clients, both W2K, trigger this problem. Stopping the 
clients "Print Spooler" makes the CPU load go back to normal and memory leakage stops, but RSS
remains at 68MB.  
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 and installing them again, but the problem remains.

I can't find anything useful in the smbd logs.
Any ideas on how to proceed?

I am running samba on a RH 7.2 server, kernel 2.4.9-34
