I tested the Access database on Ubuntu 8.10 using kernel 
2.6.27-7-generic #1 SMP Fri Oct 24 06:42:44 UTC 2008 i686 GNU/Linux with 
Samba version 2:3.2.3-1ubuntu3 and encountered no problems.
I also tested on OpenBSD current (with kernel 4.4 GENERIC#1667 i386 and 
samba-3.0.33) the database still doesn't work there.

The OpenBSD package maintainer is looking into the problem and will talk 
at FOSDEM to some Samba people this weekend.
