I think that defaulting to overwriting the files would be **bad**.
Simply by restarting the smbd daemon you would effectively erase
logs of attacks and / or bugs. This has long bothered me about nmbd
( although I relaize I can override this ). I would vote for
appending to the existing files as the default behavior.
