I've seen more and more occurrences of the following error (other people
have different password servers) on the web.


I submitted this question before, but it was never resolved.  I've even
tried changing the underlying file system (from clustered vxfs to ext3)
and I still see the error.

  tdb_chainlock_with_timeout_internal: alarm (10) timed out for key
SJMEMDC15 in tdb /usr/local/samba-3.0.23a/private/secrets.tdb



I've been seeing this error on and off for well over 1 year.  


What happens is that many smb clients (as shown on the client log files)
start throwing this error.  They cannot reach the smb server.  I restart
the server and everything is fine for days or weeks until it starts over


I'm running:


# /usr/local/samba/sbin/smbd -V

Version 3.0.23a
