No solid guesses on this.  Those messages come from deep in TDB.

Could the filesystem be full?

So this tells you that smbd was wedged in the cluster filesystem.

The good news is that you're only seeing it in vacuuming and you're
not actually seeing TDB errors in smbd.

Still, it isn't something we've seen.  If we figure out anything then
we'll definitely let you know...
