OK, I hard coded in smbc_server that if the share was IPC$, then use a null
username and password. This was perhaps unwise ... I will hack it back out

I was thinking of a listing of the answers to the questions from testsmbc,
but if you are using your own code, then they won't help me much. 

I will look at the times to see if they are UNIX times or not ...
