Please send responses directly to me, since I'm not currently subscribed

I'm trying to write a new password routine to use NIS (not NIS+). We
run into problem using the standard smbpasswd file since we have 45K+
accounts. Going through the whole file was just too slow. I think I
have it mostly working, but have some questions on the getsmbpwpos and
setsmbpwpos calls. I have to store the ypnext key, which doesn't easily
fit into a SMB_BIG_UINT.
First, are those two functions even used? I'm working with 2.0.7 and
they aren't referenced in passdb.c, or anywhere else as far as I can tell.
If they are used, how many concurrent getsmbpwpos's do I need to track.
Will it always be get, then set? Or can it be get1, get2, get3, set2,
set1, set3? Basically, can I assume that I will only have to store info
for one getsmbpwpos at a time.
Can I safely free the info after a set? Or will Samba ever need to do
two sets with the same get?
I hope this makes sense. Thanks in advance you for your help.
