I noticed that when Samba is in Share Level security, if you send it a
SessSetup&X, which Win95 does, Samba does not seem to fill out the response

The responses do not contain the normal fields after the BCC, like Domain,
OS, etc ...

I had to fix Ethereal to make it decode these things properly, but I
wondered why this is done.
