NOTE: Users of HEAD with weird configs.

This is just a note to anybody who is:
 - Using Samba's CVS HEAD development branch as a DC of some kind
 - has 'smb passwd file =' pointed to to different directory to 'private
dir ='.  

By default 'smb passwd file = $prefix/private/smbpasswd' and 'private
dir = $prefix/private', so these are fine.  If this is not the case, its
possible for samba to regenerate your MACHINE.SID in the new (correct)
location, so simply move/copy the file over before you start smbd.
