Update of /data/cvs/samba/source
In directory samba:/tmp/cvs-serv6559

Modified Files:
Log Message:

many systems don't have /etc/shadow but do have another system for
making encrypted passwords secret. For example, with secure NIS+ only
root can get the encrypted password. 

hash in the encrypted password of "root" to provide a nice source of
secret on such systems. On systems that don't have this (ie. any user
can get roots encrypted password) then the security is so slack that
it probably doesn't matter what we do to generate the secret.
