Yeah, I noticed that the first time round (that's what I was referring to
by "I think our criteria for including the extra information is incorrect"), 
but I'm not sure what the exact behaviour should be. 

I remember changing that part of the code (in the opposite way I think)
because we were returning too much information to Win95 clients (? check
CVS logs). I think checking the ntversion is not the correct thing to 
do either, as an NT4 domain controller doesn't know about any version other
than its own.

We need to create a table of which client wants how much data on which
mailslot. There must be some simple rule to it!
