Mac OS X When you run smbd -V on your Snow Leopard installation, you'll see it's running SAMBA version 3.0.28a-apple. While I'm not sure how much difference the "-apple" makes, version 3.0.28a is old. Very old. In other words, it's riddled with bugs. Apple hasn't updated SAMBA in 3 years, and for Lion, they're dumping it altogether for something homegrown. The reason? SAMBA is now GPLv3.

I wasn't aware that these problems existed with TM backups. Let's hope that Netatalk 2.2 and its reconnect features cure this problem once and for all.

Concerning the problems with authentication, I've used Netatalk for several years with Kerberos only authentication and I have yet to experience the trouble you describe.
