Samba 2.2.3a on Solaris 8

I have installed the updated brlock.c which seems to cure the problem when
dealing with files being served up by the samba server; however the problem
still persists when printing ( even though we have 2.2.3 installed we are
still using the 2.0 print system, i.e., disable spoolss = yes).
