I upgraded from samba 2.2.1a to 2.2.8 a while ago and suddenly started
getting corrupt outlook 2000 .pst files the next morning (all pst files are
stored in shares on the samba server).  Out of about 500 users I got about 3
corrupt pst files per day.

I just upgraded again to samba 3 + ldapsam and I now get at leat 30 of these
corrupt pst files daily.

The strange thing is that it never once happened on samba 2.2.1a.

When upgrading to samba 2.2.8 I started getting all kinds of strange file
permissions errors on samba shared and roaming profiles problems on my w2k
boxes.  Loading sp3 fixed this - might this be related?

Has anybody had this before?

I'm currently running samba 3.0.0 with openldap and the samba 3 ldap schema
on redhat 8 and 9 boxes.
