This bug is still present in the released 3.0.5pre1 and in Subversion. It
seems to have been introduced in revision 116 of
SAMBA_3_0/source/rpc_server/srv_samr_nt.c. Here is a quick patch to remove
the lines causing the bug (for Samba 3.0.5pre1):

        for (i=0; i<*num; i++) {

Is there a any reason to have some kind of check there?
