Since upgrading to samba 3.0.24 (Debian etch), I get the following panic logged when my OS/2 box connects to it:
Using host libthread_db library "/lib/tls/libthread_db.so.1".
[Thread debugging using libthread_db enabled]

Please upload a network trace of this connection attempt.
ok, I'll try to figure out how to do that.
However, it's pretty clear that there's a potential bad dereference in the code.
In smbd/server.c:exit_server_common() is the line
DEBUG(0,("Last message was %s\n", LAST_MESSAGE()));
where LAST_MESSAGE() is #defined to smb_fn_name(last_message).
last_message is a global, initialised to -1.
In smb_fn_name(), the passed parameter is used as an array index for smb_messages.
If last_message has not been changed from its initial value, smb_messages[-1].name will be returned and used as the value of the %s in the debug format string.
I would suggest doing some bounds checking in smb_fn_name() (in smbd/process.c).
Fixed for 3.0.28a and beyond.
