Due to a problem with a crash bug in smbd in 2.0.5, we
have released Samba 2.0.5a containg a fix for this problem
(which was causing problems for people using macro expansions
in print scripts).

Here are the notes for what we fixed between 2.0.5
and 2.0.5a, which should now be available on all
worldwide mirror sites.

Changes in 2.0.5a

1). Fix for smbd crash bug in string_sub(). smbd was miscalculating
memmove lengths on multiple '%' substitutions.
2). Fix for wildcard matching bug for old DOS programs running on Win9x.
3). Fix for Windows NT client changing passwords against a Samba server,
intermittently failing.
4). Fix for PPP link being detected as primary interface if using the
same IP address as the primary.
5). Ensure smbmount is built with RPM build.

Please accept our apologies for the problem that caused this
point patch.
