NBT length parameter larger than necessary in session request

Hi guys,

Ever notice smbclient sends an NBT session request with an NBT length
field that is 4 bytes longer than necessary? No harm, but is there a
reason for this?

I'm using 2.2.1a shipped with RH connecting to the same version of Samba
over loopback.


A  program should be written to model the concepts of the task it
performs rather than the physical world or a process because this
maximizes  the  potential  for it to be applied to tasks that are
conceptually  similar and, more important, to tasks that have not
yet been conceived.
