I have three users whose smbd processes will suddenly go rogue and start 
sucking up CPU time. It isn't guaranteed that every time they log in, that 
their process goes rogue, but it happens a lot. At that time I see that those 
smbd processes have an effective UID of the person's username, and a real UID 
of root. Everyone else's is always EUID root and UID root.

I haven't a clue how to attack this. Suggestions?
