3.0.25 was published 6-April-2007
3.0.33 was published 27-November-2008

I think you should upgrade to a recent version first. Then it will be
easier to help and find out if it's a bug, etc. And you surely will get
answers here on the list.

Or maybe your distro vendor still provides support for that very very
very old version.

This doesn't look like a very complex Samba setup. So maybe it is
possible to lift this up to 4.1 easily.
