OK - I've been trying to find time to do this today but have run out (it's
20:30 ... I want to go hoooome .. :) ... sorry.
I'll do it on Monday next week and let you know what happens.

(The Debian machine concerned was using the Debian Samba binaries, and I'd

advantages of sticking with distro components, package management system ==>
easier upgrades, standard desktop rollout, mumble, etc. etc.)
