Bug#509428: bug#509428: libsmbclient: System freeze when accessing SAMBA/CIFS share on Network Appliances storage
I can unfortunately confirm this bug.
Apparently I've upgraded several packages before the Christmas break,
and from early this year my system started freezing and spontaneously
rebooting. No logs to be found.
I'm also not certain which package is the culprit ...
Yesterday I've upgraded several smb-related packages again (new
versions have become available over the weekend, apparently), but the
I've seen the same symptoms as described:
- directory listings cut short (from 130 to 148 entries so far)
- freezing or rebooting occurs when trying filename completion or
getting large directory listings.
- My initial reaction was thinking it was a hardware problem.
Installing Lenny on a brand new pc recreated the problem, however.
Hope this helps -- if I can be of more assistance let me know.
