Samba Folks:

I'm having what seems like a relatively benign issue with Samba 3.0.2a. 
I'm running SuSE 9.0 (with all updates) on an Athlon XP, 512MB RAM,
RieserFS on SATA hard drives.  Linux kernel version 2.4.21-202-athlon
(from SuSE).

I can repeatedly and predictably get the following error in the log.smbd
file when connecting via Mac OS X.  (smb://serverIP/) I get the same
error occassionally when connecting with WindowsXP Pro/SP1, mostly when
shutting down the machine.  Interestingly, the errors in the log file do
not seem to, in any way, affect the performace of the share.  From the
client, there appear to be no problems.

Output of the log.smbd:
[2004/04/22 14:45:07, 0] smbd/server.c:main(747)
  smbd version 3.0.2a started.

I've compiled Samba from source, with the following configure line:
./configure --prefix=/usr/local --with-ldap --sysconfdir=/etc

I'm using ldapsam passwd backend, connected to OpenLDAP 2.2.10.  Here's
the relevant portions of my smb.conf file:

# Samba config file created using SWAT
# from (
# Date: 2004/04/22 15:07:41
# Global parameters
        workgroup = WORKGROUP
        server string = File Server
        password server =
        passdb backend = ldapsam:ldap://
        preferred master = No
        local master = No
        domain master = No
        ldap suffix = dc=joerhodes,dc=com
        ldap machine suffix = ou=Computers
        ldap user suffix = ou=People
        ldap group suffix = ou=Groups
        ldap admin dn = cn=admin,dc=joerhodes,dc=com
        ldap ssl = no
        ldap passwd sync = Yes
        read only = No

I haven't yet got going on domain log-ins.  That's next in the testing
phase.  So far, everything seems to be working just fine.  I can copy
files back and forth like a bandit.  Printing seems to work fine. 
Should I be worried about this error or is this just an over eager error
reporting function?

If it's not too much trouble, could you CC me directly.  I'm getting the
digest version of the list.  Thanks in advace for any help.
