Nope ... just tried it ... mode 700, owner root.  Logged into Swat
as normal user and can see everything.  Swat is running as root out 
of inetd and doesn't appear to switch users to whomever logs in.

What I was looking for is a way to restrict swat to admins on a 
large samba server ... don't see how global valid users would 
do much though I guess it should pay attention to that for the 
small cases where valis users is used ?
