OK.  I just caught this.  One winbnidd install serving multiple smbd
installations on the same host?  This seems like complicating the 
a corner case requirement.  My concern is about the ongoing maintainence
and administration of the code. 

Code that is only understood by one person is unmaintainable code.
Nothing against you mind you.  If i was the only one who understand
how our printer change notify code worked for example, I would argue 
the same point.

It could also be that the only one person understands it phenomena
it partly our fault as well for not digging in earlier.  Water under 
the bridge at this point.  Well work on it better in the future :-)

cheers, jerry
