This doesn't help, but since either the November Microsoft "Patch
Tuesday" we've seen the exact same thing across 19 different Samba PDC's
running RHES4 with Samba 3.0.10. In some of the forums I've been
reading, I've seen the same problem mentioned, but by people running
Windows 2k3 server, so I don't think it's a Samba/Windows 2k3 PDC/AD
issue, I suspect it's a client-side problem introduced from some update.
I've been searching for a solution, but I haven't found one yet. It's
not a fix, but it has helped some of our machines to install the User
Hive Profile Cleanup Service. On some machines, it has fixed the
problem, other machines, not.
I don't have hard numbers, but every "Patch Tuesday" since November,
we've seen additional machines having the same problems, either
wednesday, thursday or friday, after updating.
