Followup of NT failing when giving permissions

This also happens with English NT SP4.

The procedure to trigger the crash is this:

Open "My Computer", open a hard disk and right click over a directory
that is not shared. In the directory properties, Sharing tab change
from "Not shared" to "Shared as". Then press the "Permissions" button
and the bottom. In the "Access through Share Permissions" button press
the "Add..." button. Voila! The NT Explorer has just crashed.

I don't know if it is the same error you are getting because I get
"Explorer.exe - Application error: The instruction at "0x778933ae"
referenced memory at "0x00000098". The memory could not be "read".

This is with Samba-2.0.0beta1.
