This indicates that Samba has crashed and has called "sleep 999999999"
as the panic action.
This is to allow you to attach a debugger to the parent process and
get a stack trace (assuming you compiled with ./configure.developer).
You should be able to do something like this:
Use "ps axl" to get the parent process ID (PPID) of one of the sleep
processes. (e.g. 12345)
# gdb /usr/local/samba/sbin/samba
(gdb) attach 12345
(gdb) bt full
That might tell the Samba developers what caused the crash.

Run /usr/local/samba/sbin/samba --version to get the exact version.
