[Samba] Filesystem Corruption

Since upgrading to RedHat 9 and Samba 2.2.8 to Fedora Core 2 and Samba
3, I have had filesystem corruption which may or not be related to
Samba. Our current configuration is FC2, Samba 3.0.7-2.FC2, Kernel
2.6.8-1.521smp. The filesystem is LVM and ext3.

When a file becomes corrupt, the uid, gid and file size are huge and any
attempt to work with the file fails. Here is an example:

ll 18889452.IMG
-rwxrw-rw-  1 1516382365   2303928080   24576 Dec 31  1969 1889452.IMG

The corruption occurs for different file types on different volumes and
I have not been able to find any similarities among the files.

Any tips would be greatly appreciated.
