Is there something special about entropy.log that I don't know about?  If 
so, there is a problem because, entropy can be a machine name, and it all 
goes into 1 log file.

Disturbingly, whenever a windows machine queries my samba box to see what 
shares exist, (or smbclient for that matter) the request is logged as 
"entropy" for the machine name.

This is a big mess, and it is making it possible for people to spoof as 
"entropy" machine name, and not be detected.
