Understood, Jeremy. I'm perfectly happy with 3.0.11, I was simply
corroborating OP's findings in as much as I could.

3.0.15 is coming along: There's not much point in pursuing 3.0.14a. As
it happens, 3.0.15pre2 gives much worse problems than 3.0.14a; my XP Pro
(unpatched) ws (100Mb/s on a cross cable, so no network problems) 
continually loses network connections to the server. This is RHAS3
update3. I take it that: either others will have the same problem, or:
it's a quirk with my test server. I'm waiting to see what other RHAS2,
Centos, White Hat, whatever people report. It's too premature to report
it as a bug.

All versions are installed from official Samba srpms.

Best and thanks for a fine product :)
