I don't think that's a fair assessment; the submitter included an smb.conf
showing the configuration, and also showed the error message from the logs,
which isn't an error that should happen.  The line from the source is
returning this EINVAL from a sendto() call.  I think it's pretty clearly a
bug in the source if the socket state has gotten wedged in this manner.

Of course, there is a lot of noise in the smb.conf, so it's better to try to
reproduce this first with a stock smb.conf instead first.  And this might be
a bug only in the lenny version, so maybe we won't fix it, but we ought to
be sure this is the case first.
