Thanks, Jeremy.  Just to check ... presumably you wish us to:
   cvs ... co -r SAMBA_2_2 samba

and build that (not HEAD?).  Is this what will become 2.2.3 ?

Do you have rough timescales for release of 2.2.3 and of 3.0.0 ? 

Anyway, I have grabbed it, and am leaving it to build overnight.

But the problem about such testing is that the only real method is with
real users... and some of them know where I live!

But if you are happy that this cvs code is "almost production" quality
then I can try it on a couple of smaller servers, one of which
occasionally suffers from load-induced problems.  Is there anything in
particular we should be looking out for in log files?
