Looks like the 2.4.x kernel has some problems with sendfile.
Turn off sendfile with "use sendfile = no" as the default to
use sendfile was changed to help improve Samba speed. Prior
to this, everyone who used it reported 10% speed increases,
but no one reported problems with kernel versions so we turned
it on by default :-).
