So, when you intentionally run samba incorrectly, it breaks and you
wonder why?

I'm not in the least supprised that it doesn't work, particularly
becouse many MS clients do node status requests and other such things.

As another poster mentationed, the NT system is far less tragic - but do
you think anybody ever tests against a machine thats intentationaly
