Description of problem:
I have a bunch of FC2 and 1 rawhide box connecting to a WinXP share.
After 15-20 minutes, the rawhide box starts returning ls failures. The
only way to fix is to unmount and remount the share. The FC2 boxes
(samba-2.0.7-2.FC2) experience no such problem.

[root@grover2 ~]# umount desk
[root@grover2 ~]# mount desk
[root@grover2 ~]# cd desk/isos
[root@grover2 isos]# ls;sleep 900;ls;sleep 1200;ls
FC2-x86_64-disc1.iso  FC2-x86_64-disc2.iso  FC2-x86_64-disc3.iso 
FC2-x86_64-disc1.iso  FC2-x86_64-disc2.iso  FC2-x86_64-disc3.iso 
ls: .: Input/output error

dmesg shows the following:

smb_retry: signal failed [-3]
smb_add_request: request [03f21ee0, mid=19] timed out!

I'll need the /etc/samba/smb.conf file from your client(s) and the 
command line you use to mount the share(s) to have any hope of 
reproducing this. 
If you're using smbfs, you probably need to change the component of 
this bug to "kernel", since Samba is not smbfs.  Also, if you're 
using smbfs, try switching to cifs, which is newer, more reliable, 
and is much better maintained.

OK I'll use cifs, thanks.
