Are you sure this is the same bug ? The history of the bug
I'm referring to was reported by Volker on one of his German
Samba accounts (contact him directly for the name of the
customer) and escalated into the Solaris kernel team by
tridge via a personal contact (phone call I think) when
he and Volker were here in the Bay Area for the CIFS
conference. The patch was first created by this engineer.

I'm CC:ing Volker and tridge on this email so they can

Volker, Jerry, if you know the solaris bugid/patch id for this
bug we need to put it in the release notes for Samba 2.2.6.
