I committed the patch I mentioned here yesterday to our Samba package.  Anyone
running pre-UBC systems (i.e., not running -current) should upgrade.  Without
it, your lock files will grow unpredictably large.  Here's the log message:

Log Message:
Apply patch to tdb.c so that it works on pre-UBC systems.  .tdb databases
were previously enlarged by the sequence:  lseek, write, munmap, mmap
and are now enlarged by: munmap, lseek, write, mmap.

The Samba team is already aware of the problem.  I expect this patch will
be incorporated in a future release.
