Thanks for providing this log.  Now that I see the log, the crash makes
perfect sense. :)

But I have to say that it's not a samba bug.  What we're looking at is a
failed assertion because the OS wouldn't let the process change UIDs; as
the log says, this may be because the user has reached his limit on the
number of processes allowed.

So to fix this, you should do one of two things:

- raise the process limit for your user (for instance, via /etc/security/limits.conf) if you want these connections to succeed
- or, if you think the process limit is already set correctly, you can comment out the 'panic action' line in /etc/samba/smb.conf to suppress the email output.
