	That is not the only problem ... I will try and explain a let later ... 
but I don't think I am going to get the fix I would like ... but then 
that is Open Source ...

	Okay, the problem I have run into now, is if I apply the patches, by 
hand sometimes, I still have to run autoconf before running configure 
... now, this is not a show-stopper ... but for package compiling, which 
I am sure Buchan Miline is doing, as I am ... this is not a source patch 
... or at least not for me ...

	I have tried Herb Lewis patch that we sent me as well, and I don't seem 
to be getting any further ... so at the moment, I am just using the 
dummy patch which removes the thrid parameter from the ofending 
funnction call.

	Maybe after successful testing, we could get Jerry ( I am sorry if I 
get this wrong ... I always seem too ) to include this in Samba 2.2 as 
production code.

	Thank the Guru's have done the work, I have just done the complaining 
and asking ... nicly ;-)
