OK, it seems that I have to wait between 10 and 20 seconds before the jobs
has actually got a sysjob number and Samba thinks it is OK.

Then I can delete the job, and it actually gets deleted correctly ...

Now, I will have to put back the changes I made to see if they make any
difference. If not, I will apply some patches to ensure we do the same
things that Win9X does in this case.
