I upgraded to samba 2.0.6 via pkgsrc

platform is current (up to date) sparc ss5 and ipx

th message in log.smb is: 
[2000/01/26 09:25:57, 1] smbd/server.c:main(643)
  smbd version 2.0.6 started.

To me it looks like shared memory problem ????
The same config/setup runs fine on current I386 platform.

Is it just me or ....
