This is because a call to the Security framework touches a part of
CoreFoundation that is unhappy that Samba forks without a subsequent
exec. It's annoying but harmless.

Not really enough info to say what is happening here. the broken pipe
means that the client disconnected unexpectedly, but it's not clear
why. As some of the posters in that thread note, there is a bug in the
streams module where we return an error for reads after the
end-of-file (we ought to succeed but return no data).

Volker's suggestion to file a Radar with Apple is spot on.
