This is a minor bugfix release for 2.2.1, *NOT* security related.
1). 2.2.1 had a bug where using smbpasswd -m to add a Windows NT or
Windows2000 machine into a Samba hosted PDC would succeed, but
then joining the machine to the domain would fail due to our
stricter user name checking. We were disallowing user names
containing '$', which is needed when using smbpasswd to add a
machine into a domain. Automatically adding machines (using the
native Windows tools) into a Samba domain worked correctly in
2.2.1a fixes this single problem. If you do not need the functionality
of smbpasswd -a -m to add machines to a Samba PDC then there is no need
to upgrade.

Sorry for the problem, and a big thanks to Toomas Soome
for finding this bug.

Buying an operating system without source is like buying
a self-assembly Space Shuttle with no instructions.
