after the installation of Samba 3.04 (upgrade from 3.02) a single XP 
notebook cannot connect to any share.

The log shows these messages:

[2004/05/17 11:48:18, 0] lib/util_sock.c:read_socket_data(367)
  read_socket_data: recv failure for 4. Error = Connection reset by

  alloc_sub_basic: NULL source string!  This should not happen

As far as I have understand the problem is on the client site, but 
there seems to be something on the samba side because before the 
upgrade the client could connect without any problem. In the same 
network there are other Windows machines (Win98, W2K, XP), all with 
the latest updates from Windows Update loaded.

This client can connect fine to another Samba server (2.2.8a) in the 
same network (really it's a VMware virtual machine with Debian 8 on 
my W2K notebook).

Can anyone point me in the direction where to seek? I have full 
access to the notebook and can do any configuration changes.
The notebook is _not_ a part of the Samba owned NT domain (as the 
normal PCs are).

Thank you very much for any help!
