Thanks - I'll give those a shot - I guess I figured the Excel errors were
a manifestation of an underlying Samba issue due to the strange crashes in
the error logs.

If I install samba 3.0.31 from source in /usr/local, is it only the
smb.conf, secrets.tdb and smbpasswd / LDAP data I'll have to migrate over
to preserve our domain trusts - or will things break if I do just that?
