I had this at my screen this morning...

the process sleep who supposedly cause the problem was
running from this shell script:

# Little shell script to continuously display the status of
# samba
# (the "echo SAMBA;" is to loop indefinitly...)
while { echo SAMBA; } do {
    sleep 2;
} done

This program ran for about 4 hours before crashing.

My computer is a dual P-II 333Mhz, 128Mb Ram, 2x 8.4Gb HD,
/home mounted in raid linear to /dev/md0, samba 2.0.4b

If you need more informations, E-Mail me and I will send you
what you need.

Thank you
