No, unfortunately, the problem also occurs with the current HEAD branch.
I got Luke vaguely interested before christmas, and he asked for a netmon
trace, which I did send.  The problem (for me) is that I have no NT Server
here, so I couldn't send him the corresponding netmon trace of a successful
dialogue between NT Server and TSE.  Since then, someone else has contacted
me directly as a result of my original query (hello Mark) who will be able
to do such a trace, I have just been waiting for a suitable opportunity
to raise it again with Luke.

Luke, I see you have been posting to the nt-dom mailing list again, will
you have any time to look at this soon, it seems there are others out there
who are trying to use samba like this...
