I just had the unpleasant experience of crashing a production server
_twice_ when trying to access a file share.
The server is 64-bit Windows 2003 on an itanium3. My box is RedHat Linux
8.0 with Samba 3.0.0-2. Here's some messages from syslog:
Mar 19 09:13:58 hedron automount: attempting to mount entry

Normally, I automount my windows shares. This has been working actually,
for about 3 months, without a problem.
Call it a testament to the reliability of 64-bit Win2003 that trying to do
a file listing with Samba blue-screens the server. The first time I
thought it must just be a coincidence, but after a reboot, it did it again!
They have to constantly patch the window's boxes here for security problems
of course; this could be an early warning that M$ has changed something to
be incompatible with Samba.
