Well, thats all i got, i dont use windows, i dont even have a
windows cd, and i dont want to repartition just to install
windows, and test this bug. I'll test with linux if people
want that. The reason i'm not using NFS, is because it's on
a shared network, so i want the password protection.

Well sort of. I ment dont run samba in a vserver in a production

I think so as well, because i run a regular samba server as well, in a
environment, and that works fine. I seem to remember that back when i
ran userspace
nfs inside a vserver, i had the same lockup's, but i'm not 100% sure.
