Here is situation:
1. We decide to switch on "Auto proxy config" in our network (you know,
2. After that there are lot of robots (checking for new versions, upgrading,
esp. M$ upg) on client
computers start trying to fetch resources, but w/o any authentication (or
I dont understand what is going on :).
3. Result is unxepected: alot of "requests in queue" to ntlm_auth, because
of this squid restarts every
2 min when in morning computers are going up. :(
samba-3.0.20, no patches
ntlm_auth from samba pack

My ideas about why this happens are exausted (all of them are unproductive
ANYBODY, please, if you have similar, or heard about this situation, please
