Hi,

We are seeing a strange problem with Samba where clients are getting
locked out of files and the BDC is eventually slowing down to a crawl.

The output from smbstatus lists very long lists of processes per user
(see below).

Before I post the config, has anyone seen this behaviour before?

Regards,
H.
