NT5rc2 -> Samba PDC

nmbd/nmbd_processlogon.c.  the code "if (mailslot_name ==
"\\MAILSLOT\NTLOGON)" is causing problems.

NT5rc2 is sending UNICODE-style (NT-style) GETDC requests on
\\MAILSLOT\NETLOGON, making the above-mentioned if statement, which is
designed to detect the difference between win95 and nt GETDC requests,

my default action is to remove the if statement, which of course breaks
win95.  my feelings towards win95 are well known to most people (and for
those people who don't know, i try not to _have_ any feelings for win95,
or even to acknowledge its existence.  i don't even call it an operating
system, these days, i refer to it as a "single-user system").

please could someone come up with a suitable comparative statement that
does _not_ rely on distinguishing nt-style GETDC requests from
CIFS-documented GETDC requests by examining the MAILSLOT name?

this will allow nt5rc2 wkstas to be joined to a samba domain.
