I'm seeing some tdb errors, although there doesn't appear to be much of 
a correlation between them and the "too many handles" errors:

[2005/02/01 12:50:57, 0] smbd/connection.c:register_message_flags(220)
  register_message_flags: tdb_fetch failed

(We're using per-host logging.  I'm only checking for tdb errors in the 
logs of hosts that were having "too many handles" errors; if I should be 
checking somewhere else, please let me know.)

We're happily running Samba 3.0.11 now, and I'm hoping that that will 
fix the "too many handles" errors.  I'll post again if I continue to 
have problems.  Thanks for your help.
