track it down by doing a cvs -t co -D "4 days ago" -r SAMBA_TNG samba

then narrow it down with a binary search till you find the version that
does and does not work.

tell me the cvs date and time and the +/- range, do a diff -r on the two
directories you find.

this will tell exactly what code went into cvs that broke it.

i don't use win9x, so if win9x matters to people, they will need to do
this themselves, not me.  i will fix the problem... _if_ someone else
tracks it down.

thx ppl.

p.s. big hint: it's likely to be in nmbd/nmbd_processlogon.c.

p.p.s. another hint: try running with 2.0.6 nmbd and see if that works.
