Hello everyone!

After upgrading from samba 3.4.9 to samba 3.6.1 on a FreeBSD 8.1 x86 system
smbd stopped working.
It starts successfully, but crashes as soon as someone tries to connect to a
Log file contains a lot of entries like the following:

It seems that something is wrong with the messages.tdb file. I have tried
removing it, it was re-created  but nothing has changed. 
Please let me know how can this be fixed?

Many thanks in advance.

With best regards,
P. Trifonov
