I'm not about to open the box up for international inspection.  This
all started when I decided I wanted to harden my system a bit by
closing unnecessary ports.  I was hoping at least that I wasn't the
only one that had noticed this behavior.  I don't want to have to
resort to blocking incoming access via iptables because that's just
patching the problem and not a true solution.  Maybe someone knows
where Samba would log this kind of behavior and its cause?
