Hi Jeremy,

Thank you for your reply.

I know that and I personally don't like it either.  It's a fact though
that Mac OS X does it this way.

It's not going to change in this life, I fear.  It's probably much too
late for such a big change in the OS.  I could imagine compatibility
options in the OS to handle this, but I rather doubt these will
appear, and I'm sure they won't appear for the existing OS versions.

So what you are effectively saying is you don't want Samba to compile
OOTB on Mac now if you have to change the code for that?

I understand.
