How come failed authentications aren't ....

I'd rather see something that works with the current DEBUG system.  DEBUG
also writes to syslog, if enabled by the sysadmin.  Adding the patch
described below does add some usefull functionality, at the expense of
having to manage yet another log output mechanism. 

There is code with Samba 2.0.x that can convert DEBUG output into HTML. 
My next goal with this (when I have time, which isn't right now I'm
'fraid) is to integrate this with Swat and add some filtering and sorting

Don't get me wrong, though.  I've had my share of complaints with the 
DEBUG system and other Samba mechanisms.  The importance of working 
within the system to change it has been made clear to me.  ;)
