As I saw that PDB_VERSION was not used, I don't understand what it was for.
So I prefered let it unmodified. Moreover I think TDBSAM is a better 
name ;).
If it is really useless, you can remove it.

Ok, I will do this like that. I think it's a good idea. And we will see 
when the code will be ready.

Grrr. As I already said, this field cannot be manage as a string anymore 
due to Windows TSE !
Windows TSE use a trick to store its informations inside this field. All 
its informations are separated by a \0 !
So, all the strxxx() functions are totally useless. We cannot use it 
like that. It must be store as a Blob, and cannot be printed anymore 
(or, all the informations must be parsed before).
