Since my upgrade to 3.0.23c the mentioned problems seem to be gone.
Nevertheless I will remove samba printers and stop cups support on the
misbehaving server as we do not depend on this service. I will then go
back to 3.0.14 and see if the problem persists.
Unfortunately I cannot let samba run under valgrind on this server
because it is a production system. Perhaps I can try to produce the
memory leakage on a test system.

Thanx for helping so far
