Red Hat Bug 389021  opened on 11-17-07.

Near identical wildcard problem reported 11-16-07 after security update in Gentoo. See:
http://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic-p-4509521.html?sid=e417b093d116b24b4bb819bcbd949473
FWIW, Gentoo bug number is 199450.  

Unlike the ubuntu version of this problem, neither the RHEL3 nor the Gentoo bugs segfault nmbd. 

The updated RHEL5 CLIENT does not exhibit the problem. The RHEL3 CLIENTS exhibit the problem 
after Centos3 or RHEL5 samba SERVER updates. All this is reversible by installing the old rpms 
respectively. The Gentoo issue is similarly reversible.

This looks like this could be a null pointer dereference issue caused by the samba security patch. Bug 
reports probably need to be upgraded a notch from low priority since a lot of people apparently have 
mixed linux-win networks and use linux-to-linux samba transfers.

benm
