I agree completely. My main thought was that 'Samba crashing Windows' 
ultimately makes Samba look bad. Besides that, it's not unlikely that 
there is also a bug in Samba that is contributing.

Either way, there doesn't seem to be a way to even talk to Microsoft 
without shelling out money. I'm going to check with a co-worker who has 
an MSDN sub next week and see if there is a route there.
