Yes, I did.

May be you are right but this could not explain why everything functions
OK. People can log into the server, can share files and so on.
Nevertheless I get thousands of messages like that all the time making the
system slow. By the way, making the system slow and a lot of log messages
are the only 'sensible' problems, if you understand.

Another thing I could not understand is why we have the option in smbldap
of not having the test if geteuid is root. As I could recompile smbd
taking this test out it seems to be unnecessary...

Thank you again for your reply. I'll dive into the conf files
looking for any ldap misconfigurations.
