I'm wrong.  I don't see *smbclient* set that bit, and I don't see smbd set
it in the reply either.  W2K sets it both as client and as server.  

Having read up on it and checked the wire, I think Samba is wrong here
(not that it matters, the server is supposed to ignore the bit if NT LM
0.12 is negotiated).  I think jCIFS is right.
