I do not want to sound like a broken record, but Samba 2.x is dead code. Noone 
maintains it today. I recommend that you update to Samba-3 (3.0.14a is 
current stable) and if this problem still exists that you file a bug report 
of https:bugzilla.samba.org. Filing of a bug report will get action as soon 
as someone can make the time to deal with it.
