[Samba] Samba server 3.0.7: "Short read when getting file"

I am running a Samba server on Debian testing. Each day, I run an
automatic update via apt. Up until recently, the server was working fine;
I am assuming that the update has upgraded to a non-working version.

I can log onto the server using smbclient and browse the files, but when I
issue a "get" command I get the "Short read" error message. If I use
smbmount, things are worse: The directory mounts but I cannot browse
it or unmount it. Accessing the directory from a Windows machine provides
a similar effect to smbclient: I can browse the directories but accessing
the files does not work.

Has anybody experienced these problems or know a solution for them?
