Thanks for the reply. Due to my need of Samba I reinstalled Ubuntu 10.04 on my main pc and Mint 9 on my laptop. I don't experience the bugs in either of these two distros which makes me think there is a underlying problem in LMDE. I will eagerly try LMDE again very soon and if the same problems persist, I shall implement these instructions. I'm hoping by the time I reinstall it, things will be well.

That single aspect drove me nuts. After several reinstalls and reinstallations of Samba I gave up. Only later to find the shared folder from another system on the home network.
The item may have been listed in a bug report elsewhere but I never saw it. Am quite happy to see the confirmation mentioned here.
Hopefully the "rolling release" updates will cure that.
