I'm not 100% sure it's that WinXP KB835732 update but it's the only thing
that has been changed in the last two days.  Machines are regularly losing
their network connections, mapped drives, and printers, leading to lockup
and crashes.  I found this in the samba logs of the affected machines.

They all look pretty much like that.  It's only the WinXP SP1 machines that
had problem with the patch that it occurs to.  Others are unaffected.  Some
where fixed by uninstalling and reinstalling the windows patch.  Can anyone
suggest anything?  Should I disabled spoolss and go to using local client
