Send them here, and (possibly, but I don't particulary use it) to
samba-patches at as diff -u.

We must produce the same results as a remote Win2k server, particulary
including error codes.  (Many subtle bugs lie in those error codes...)

Even better would be to be able to replicate Win2k when it speaks DOS
error codes too (you would need to use smbfilter), but we *know* that
our NTSTATUS codes are often wrong, and need fixing.
