	It did run once, but subsequently had problems 
	with the glibc folks: at one point they actually 
	seemed to think smbsh was a bad idea (;-))

	In principle, there is nothing in Linux that
	should stop smbsh: I use exactly the same calls 
	in my Linux as my Solaris interceptors[1].
	And I'd love to see smbsh universally available[2]!

	What's the symptoms? How can  we help?

[1. I'm a former member of the ABI team at Sun, write lots
   of interceptors, and have given Linux talks on the
 2. I think HP may have had a related problem, but I haven't
