Sorry, but I have to take back my words, partly at least :-( .

Today the corruption problem was back when I compiled our SW on a samba 
share. Now this got me really confused, because yesterday I did the 
"gmake clean all" procedure for our SW at least a dozen times, and 
everytime it was OK. But today already on the first try linking would 
bail out because LIB.EXE generated a corrupted library.
What the heck I thought, why does it fail again. As a first measure I 
rebuilt samba with todays additional fix to locking.c, but this didn't 
change anything. Then, as a preparation to run a tcpdump, I looked at 
the smbd process responsible for my share with lsof. Hmm, I wondered, 
why does it use "netbios-ssn" as a local port, my PC is running uptodate 
WXPSP2 (german, without IE7), shouldn't it use "microsoft-ds" then?

Ok, disconnected and reconnected the share, and sure enough the 
connection to the share would use "microsoft-ds" now. Restarted the 
build of our SW, and voila! everything is fine now and the SW builds 
until the end.

So this corruption only happens for "netbios-ssn"/port 139 connections 
now (? not sure about this, but I can try with original 3.0.25b too if 
you want), but with "microsoft-ds"/port 445 connections all works like a 
Is this enough information for you or do you want me to do some smbd 
debug and/or tcpdump debugging?
