There is a level 10 log attached.  I stopped samba, cleared the logs,
restarted samba, tried to connect, stopped samba and grabbed the logs.

I'm not having very good luck getting strace to attach to the smbd

StorNext CVFS is supposed to be a posix filesystem, and in Unix it appears
to be posix - but I can't say for sure!

Maybe I just don't know what I'm looking for in the logs!
