To fix the inotify problem use

kernel change notify = No

in your smb.conf.  I am still experiencing this problem on RHEL 5.4
fully patched.  As for the log files, the inotify errors did the same
thing to me (default size is 5M, and I got 100+GB log files)

Had a server fill up completely with a samba workstation log file.  The
log file repeatedly had this information

[2010/04/29 04:00:01, 0] smbd/notify_inotify.c:inotify_handler(240)
  No data on inotify fd?!

about a billion times.

In my smb.conf Ihave max log size = 50 set, so I was hoping the log file
wouldn't get that big.
