Moved to samba-technical....


I am unable to reptoduce this using the English 
version of Windows 2000.  Can you provide us with 
level 10 debug logs?  Maybe post them on an FTP site
were we can grab them?  

If worse comes to worse, I can install a german 
version of Win2k and try to reproduce it there.....

Cheers, jerry
