Hmmm... You're right on that one. Is it really wise to have Samba's
private directory default to live under /usr/local? This to me is an
invitation to NFS export it. (-: How about /var/lock/samba or
something like that?

I was just curious whether having files called MACHINE.SID and .SID
lying around would confuse multiple smbds.
The actual problem is pretty weird. I create a file called 'foo' on a
samba share from NT Explorer and it can't be deleted. Bringing up
properties on this file and clicking on anything under security
crashes explorer. )-:
I'd recently changed a machine over to security=domain so thought
there might be a problem there.
