I've posted a couple times about smbd processes that crashes at random. 
  It happened again last night.

I was able to restart samba via SWAT and get it back up and going.  I've 
noticed a couple new things going on.  Even after I got it to restart 
there is still a bunch of pid's associated with smbd that get listed 
when doing an smb status command.  pid's that are not even associated 
with active connections anymore.  Seem to be eternally stuck until a 

I have also noticed that on our PDC listed in the active connections is 
the IP address of this member server.  It is the only IP address in the 
active connections list, and the only server listed in the active 
connections.  That really doesn't make sense to me.  It is almost acting 
like a client instead of a domain member server.

Right now I'm just trying to look for answers as to why this may be 
happening.  Any suggestions, thoughts, etc.. ???
