As a point of information, I don't think that samba specifically has
anything to do with the problem.

I am running samba on FreeBSD, and have two servers that are rather
heavily used (one is the filestore for a CFD cluster, and the other
for a Maya/Muster rendering cluster), each having two em interfaces
and SMP -- and have not seen any watchdog issues (they are currently
running FreeBSD 6.2-PRERELEASE as of Oct  7 -- but no problems with
any earlier 6.1-STABLE versions either).
