In version 3.0.23a (as a file server), I've noticed that CIFS clients
(mount samba shares as cifs) get read errors.


For example, if the vi a text file on the share, they get a read error.


If the more a text file, nothing comes back, but the prompt.


In 3.0.10 (pre configured by Centos, not compiled by me) this is not a



Here are my 3.0.23a options during configure:


./configure --prefix /usr/local/samba-3.0.23a --with-smbmount --with-pam
--with-pam_smbpass --with-acl-support --disable-iprint --disable-cups



I noticed that cifs mount is enabled my default:


# ./configure --help| grep -i cifs

  --with-cifsmount        Include mount.cifs and umount.cifs (Linux
only) suppo



Any suggestions?  Is there a fix in 3.0.25a?
