I am running Samba 3.0.14a-2 on Fedora 4. I have no problem seeing the
Linux file system from any of the Windows (2000, SP4) computers
attached to the network.

The problem is that smbd processes are created for no apparent reason
and never die. I noticed this when the computer had been up for about
three days and there were some 600 active smbd processes!

What could be the cause of this behaviour? More importantly, what is
the solution? Clearly, this is not normal behaviour!

Thanks in advance for your help.
