Maybe someone noticed it before, but some shares with %U in the name don't work either (even after applying Jeremy's
patch to samba 2.2.0).

[%u] and [tlc-%U] don't work (I get %u and tlc-%U in the list of available shares)
[%U] gets substituted correctly.

Everything else we use seems to work after upgrading from 2.0.7 to 2.2.0 . Thanks for the great work!
