I have documented this problems 3 times now am am currently experiencing
the worst one yet.

I have samba shares that come up missing after a machine reboot while
clients are connected to some shares.
It seems to only be those directories that are mapped to samba, the
share's still show up via a windows client but no data.  (like missing 20 gigs)
Even from teh Linux machine, I cant see the data.  The last time this
happened a couple reboots and my data reappeared.  Is this filesystem
related? Anyone ever heard of this?  This time after 3 reboots some of teh
dir structure has returned, but no data yet...

Fedora core 1/ Samba 3/ ext3
