If the locking database becomes corrupt then Samba will definately crash.
Does this happen every time you restart Samba (the locking databases are
re-initialised on restart) ? If so, is it repeatable on another machine ?

I don't have any outstanding bugs on the generic tdb or locking database
code so I'm looking for another possibility here.
