We'll certainly have a go for you.  I assume you mean the 'smbd' that
has got wedged (non "TERM"-able).  Or do you mean the still running ones
(i.e the ones that are getting the 'tdb' errors.)

<fx: Mac beavering off to install gdb for Solaris 9....>

(and yes, the very astute of you will have noticed that the code
fragment I mentioned came from 3.0.25, but the log file entries are
3.0.24....... We'll move to 3.0.25 when 'b' comes out).
