I've seeing the following error messages recorded in logwatch against 
samba in two FC6 XA-64 systems with samba 3.0.24-7.

lib/util_str.c:safe_strcpy_fn(603)  ERROR: string overflow by 1 (24 - 23) in safe_strcpy

The main share in use on the first machine is via the guest account with Vista and XP clients, the other has more conventional shares with the Vista PC's as domain members and acl's in use.

I've seen some weird behaviour with the Vista clients at the first site. For example a Vista machine can create a folder but can't rename it. Someone using a windows briefcase on their vista pc syncing to the samba share sees very poor performance. nmbd is running and dhcpd is giving wins details to the network. But does Vista take on the Wins info?

Any ideas?

Thanks in advance
