If you want something to be investigated, a good description,
with a *REPRODUCIBLE TEST CASE* is needed.

For example, I'm going to great efforts with the Win9x clarion
problem that someone has reported (haven't been able to
reproduce it yet).

This is because the person included a link to the test code,
a full description of the samba versions being used, on what
platforms, and a full description of what the clients were

This gets attention. I vaguely remember your posts, so I
can't say they didn't include all that, but you might want
to ensure you have those details and re-post.



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