[SAMBA] PANIC: failed to set gid

samba 2.2.8 is working on my FreeBSD 4.8 - server. Samba is the PDC and 
almost everything is working fine.

When a user wants to change his own samba password, he presses 
CTRL_ALT_Delete in windows and clicks on "Change Password". After entering 
the passwords, windows shows a popup which says that it isn't possible to 
change the password because the domain is not available.

On the console these errors appear (many times):
/kernel: pid 94755 (smbd), uid 1010: exited on signal 6
/kernel: pid 94756 (smbd), uid 65534: exited on signal 6

in /var/log/log.[PCname] these errors appear:
[2003/05/27 14:55:08, 0] lib/util_sec.c:assert_gid(114)
  Failed to set gid privileges to (0,1001) now set to (1001,1001) 
[2003/05/27 14:55:08, 0] lib/util.c:smb_panic(1094)
  PANIC: failed to set gid

What is happening to samba, and what is the solution for this problem?

Thanks in advance,
