I already suspected it, but it is now confirmed: two clients whose logs 
did not contain that entry are now producing it after Windows XP Service 
Pack 3 has been applied to them. I have logs with hundreds of thousands 
of kilobytes filled with that error. Everything seems to be working 
correctly, though.

Can any of the developers please tell us what does this mean and what 
should we do to prevent it?

Thank you.

PS - The Samba version in use is now Sernet 3.2.8-38
