The latest package for RHEL4 is samba-3.0.25b-1.el4_6.4 and includes several
fixes for a regression in a security update.
Can you check the probelm does not occur with this package ?

I havent recieved 6.4 yet in my update list. Will test when arrived. Boxes 
grabbed the latest patches yesterday (24/3) and no sign of this package.

Any news on this bug?
It would be nice to know if you still can reproduce it with latest RHEL packages.
