Samba 2.0.7 mem leaks, continued

Yes I am. I made the changes to filename.c, and only to it. After copying back the original filename.c it worked again. The profiles I am talking about are copied from H: to C: when a user logs in and then again back from C: to H: when logging out. It is this procedure that fails with the patch. I can not change anything in this procedure, it is corporate standard and maintained from elsewhere. I'm quite sure that the patch has no impact on the profiles as such, it is the copy that fails, just like the smbd had cut the thread before the operation is finished.

That patch shouldn't have had any effect on profiles.
Are you sure it was the patch that caused the problem ?
