Which version of samba are your running, the debian stable version? 
if not, try the 2.6.39 kernel from backports. 

vi /etc/apt/sources.list.d/debian-backports.list
add : 
deb http://backports.debian.org/debian-backports squeeze-backports main

apt-get update
apt-get install -t squeeze-backports linux-image-2.6.39-bpo.2-amd64

and check again if the error is there.
