Public bug reported:
Binary package hint: samba
I using my set-up with samba shares for 2-3 years and have never noticed
this before. I assume it started just some weeks or months ago.
I am using the following mount options on my Ubuntu 9.10 machine (the
problem was already on 9.04, as I just upgraded a few days ago)
mount.cifs ...... -o
The samba server is running on a Debian 5.0 xen-DomU with samba version
3.2.5. The xen-Dom0 is Ubuntu 8.04 LTS (Linux xen-samba 2.6.24-24-xen #1
SMP Tue Aug 18 18:15:39 UTC 2009 x86_64 GNU/Linux).
I have not found any file corruptions on the shares yet. So I guess the
cifsxxxx files are some sort of temp files. They do not do any harm
except looking ugly and eating up filespace.
