Ok - in conversation with tridge we don't think this is an exploitable
hole. If you believe otherwise can you please mail samba-security at samba.org
with full exploit details.

This is a crash bug, and I am going to go fix that immediately, but we
don't think this is a security hole (but please send more details so we 
can be sure).

Thanks !
