Uhmm, oops ... Totally didn't thought of this. Never expected my linkstation 
to run on linux, seems like I missed something.

So according to the wiki, the samba version is:
Samba 2.2.8a-ja-1.1-beta5

Which then indeed leads to the redhat bug.
Good in a sense that I'm not alone, bad in the sense that this can't be 
fixed easily... :-/

So I'll watch this bug.

Tiemen, thanks a lot for your research! (Should really have come up with 
this my self! :-[ )
