Indeed - that's why I keep telling Luke not to
add more stuff into smb.conf. I much prefer
these things to be in a separate file, indexed
by username/uid. If they aren't present, fake
'em with defaults embedded in the binary (null
be default for all of them).


Buying an operating system without source is like buying
a self-assembly Space Shuttle with no instructions.
