This bug here: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=439154 turned out to be a bug in smbclient when trying to put files bigger than trivial sizes on a vista client.
Guenther also confirms v3-0-stable has this issue against vista.
The error returned is Error writing file: ERRSRV - ERRerror (Non-specific error code.)
Traces are available in the redhat bugzilla too.
Simo, I guess you mean 3-2-stable :) This is where I can perfectly reproduce it as well.
sorry, yes that was a stupid typo
Ok, I just attached to a Vista share with smbclient and "put" a 1881141248 byte sized file successfully. How are you reproducing this ? I need much more info.

Ok, Jeremy I can only upload this attached file to a vista share using 3-2-stable smbclient when changing the writesize to the default (small) writesize of 4k which is defined in ./libsmb/clireadwrite.c:697
Can you reproduce that? If not, I'm happy to provide much more info.

This fixes it for me. Now, do the same restrictions apply to IPC$ on Vista too ?
Closing, fixed in git source trees.
