samba (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Ubuntu 12.04.1 LTS
Samba 2:3.6.3-2ubuntu2.3
krb5-config 2.2
Samba on ubuntu joined to Windows 2003 domain
Share on /media/100RAGE = /dev/md0 (software raid5)

getent passwd, getent group working fine.
All working fine, except I see errors in samba logs.

We have two of the same server with the same configuration (differents only in hostname).

Samba crushes everytime after opening shared folder from windows workstation on both servers.

It would be better if you could upload this bug info with apport-collect and that will get a full set of diagnostic logs.

You might also want to install the -dbgsym package ( ) that will get a much more detailed backtrace if you can't upload the crash logs directly.

I seem to have hit the same bug, invalid poiter free()d by gssalloc_free() called by gss_release_buffer()

Happens when a program installed on the DC connects to this linux requesting some registry keys (not knowing this is not a windows machine)

Here is a stack trace with full symbols

Core was generated by `smbd -F'.
Program terminated with signal 6, Aborted.

In my case the crash only happens on remote registry access, file sharing works. Mine is joined to a Windows 2012 AD.

I tracked my crash to what appears to be missing structure initialization, resulting in invalid pointers being free()d

Added two initializations, seems to fix the problem. Not being familiar with samba, please confirm if I'm doing the right thing.
