The main problem is, if there is a problem (and I am not saying there
is), it will not get fixed, Samba 3.4.x is long EOL as far as Samba is
concerned. This is one of the joys of running RHEL, you get stable
software, but it is stable only because it is old. There have been lots
of fixes and improvements since 3.4.5 was released, very few of which
will have been backported.

My advice would be to upgrade the RHEL OS and, by default, Samba.
