Hmm, I didn't know that there are cases where the WordCount and  
ByteCount are omitted.  Is this the case for all DOS errors?  Is it  
possible to document the cases when they are omitted?  As it is there  
is samba client code that detects an omitted WordCount/ByteCount in  
this situation as an error, so if this is correct server behavior  
we'll need to update the client.

Thank you for your detailed investigation!
