hi everyone,
I've been subscribed to the mailing lists for about 18 months to 2 years but
have never had the opportunity to post.

One of our clients has a box that is a 3Ghz Pentium 4 running FC1 and 512 MB
of memory. An upgrade was performed to FC4 [2 make use of ACL's].  We haven't
yet started to implement ACL's [or made any changes to the Samba configuration].

The problem we are experiencing is that the standard daemon processes [SMBD]
are using significantly more CPU [processes that were running a 10% are now
running at over 40%]. 

Has anybody seen or heard of this before or is this a FC4 specific problem.
The boxes are primarily Windows file sharers but they do run qmail as well.

Any help would be greatly appreciated
