Bad network? TCP does not checksum the payload, so it might
be possible that the data arrives corrupted.

A way to at least detect this would be to enforce smb
signing. 'server signing = mandatory' would be that option.

You might then see spurious network disconnects which also
might corrupt the DB, but smbd should be much more verbose
for this particular error.
