[Samba] More Random Behaviour

A few random possible causes for "no reason" failures:

- a config file was changed some time ago but someone failed to test it by
restarting the daemon or
rebooting the server, until now

-some server is having network connectivity or load issues, and the backup
or secondary doesn't have the same information

-some third party changed permissions somewhere that wasn't immediately

-your server is having connectivity or load or file system space issues
(don't forget to check the
space where the error log goes)

-your config file has cruft in it from many versions ago that no longer
applies to this particular version (that bit me yesterday on my AV scanner!)

Seriously, turn your log level down to something sane and make sure that you
understand any error that you see.
