can you run

# smbcontrol pool-usage PID > pool-usage.txt

on one of the memory eating processes *before* it has grown to multi-GB 
in size and post it somewhere for download? The pool-usage command 
prints a textual representation of the memory managed by the 
hierarchical memory allocator "talloc" that is used by Samba for most 
memory allocations.
