Thats almost certainly a reiserfs bug. It may well be reiserfs failing to
handle the fact smbfs stole all the inodes or similar however.

There is a 2.2.16pre1 (v 2.2.15pre19 since Linus hasnt replied to the requests
to put out 2.2.15 final yet) on That has some changes in it
from Tridge to clean up a pile of smbfs bits and bobs. I'd be interested
to know if that works (but without reiserfs also patched in)
