I decided to update my kernel and libc from Dec 16th to Feb 01, and now
Samba has stopped working.  I rebuilt both 2.0.6 and 2.0.7pre1 (ya never
know), both with the same results.

What I see when running "smbd -d 10" and trying to look at a share is:

[2000/02/01 20:49:25, 10] lib/genrand.c:do_reseed(135)
  do_reseed: got 40 bytes from /dev/urandom.
[2000/02/01 20:49:25, 4] locking/shmem_sysv.c:sysv_shm_open(547)
  Trying sysv shmem open of size 65535

(I set "shared mem size = 65535" in smb.conf, just in case the shared mem
limit in the kernel was hosed, and was blocking the original 1M's not).

This repeats twice, and then the attempt to mount the share (or just browse
it with smbclient) fails.

Has anyone else seen this?  I'm using the same smb.conf that I've been using
for ages, so I don't think that's it, but...who knows. ;-)
