I now tried both to rebuild 3.0.11 (to see if there is some problem with 
my build system), and it still works fine, and 3.3.0 (trying to bisect 
when the problem was introduced) and it still fails the same way with a 
slight difference:

And here, after the minute, instead of this

I get this:

Domain=[WETRON] OS=[Unix] Server=[Samba 3.3.0]

         Server               Comment
         ---------            -------
         HP                   Samba Server 3.3.0

         Workgroup            Master
         ---------            -------
         WETRON               HP

And smbd dies (with 3.3.12 it also died but not until the next query).

I'm going to try earlier versions.
