messenger service...

Some more notes...

- I would really like to see a packet capture of this.  I am now guessing 
  that those bytes are just garbage.  Ethereal seems to have a good 
  parser for the messenger service.  I'd like to take a look.

- The error code will, of course, be in the SMB header and not at the end 
  of the message.  Silly me.

- I found a file called SMB.hlp.  This is a Windows Help file that used to 
  be included with older copies of NetMon.  It may be there in newer 
  copies as well, but I don't know.  Anyway, it contains all sorts of 
  hidden gems including the record layout for the messenger service.

  By the way, this file claims that there is a broadcast send.  In theory 
  (if this is implemented correctly) you could broadcast the message 
  instead of iterating through the list of all users.
