I really liked that because it reflects so well the attitude that people
must have if they're working on CIFS.  If you let this stuff get to you,
you'll go crazy.  I've seen it happen--it's not pretty (but it is kinda
funny to watch, in a three stooges sort of way).  If you're going to work
on this stuff, you need to cultivate that wise old guru sense of blissfull
acceptance and karmic destiny.  Lots of tea helps too.

Interesting.  That sounds like a jCIFS-side thing, though.  Hmmm...  I
really need more time to study the code.  I'm getting rusty.
