Anyone have any ideas about detecting whether the arcfour-hmac code is
broken, as before last week or so when the fix was put in the snapshot?
Samba needs to know and not use it if it's broken, but I'd like to use it
when possible and not just generally disable it.  THere are a lot of 0.4e
installs out there...
