Samba. nmbd dump_workgroups problem?


Aug 8th 7.30 am, the server had a problem when all the availble disk space had gone, there should of been 180 Gig.
Investigating the logs the last activity was at 04.02 in the morning with this:
**********************************

Aug 8 08:41:09 localhost gconfd (kingsmead-14752): Resolved address "xml:readwrite:/home/kingsmead/.gconf" to a writable configuration source at position 0
************************************************
A reboot was successful and the disk space was back to normal, I had also notice before reboot that on the system monitor the /dev/mapper/VolGroup00-logVol00 was reading 98% and system activity was going crazy.

Since that reboot all system activity has been normal and seems stable. There was no loss of data.

Looking at the logs again there is still the nmbd dump_workgroups () message at 4 am, but is this normal log rotation? or is there a problem with Samba configuration ?

Thanks to anyone who can help throw some light on this, I see there has been quite a few question about this ( nmbd dump_workgroups () message at 4 am) .
Thanks
