The thing I didn't realise is that NT allows IPC calls on any disk
share. I had assumed (incorrectly) that IPC calls should only be
allowed on IPC shares. It will be interesting to test IPC calls on
disk shares at the next CIFS bakeoff. (yes, samba does support them).

So the correct fix is to roll back my changes, and mark it as a disk
share with no filesystem access possible. We'll need to make sure the
test for filesystem access is very robust.

a first? You must be kidding. You've found bugs in my code heaps of
