I'm sorry, but I would be very hesitant to apply a patch that 'should
work' on the current code, without actual validation.

I would also like the view of a FreeBSD hacker on the subject, as it
just seems like the wrong way to build the utmp file - but this is the
most system-dependent area of Samba, and there are some pretty strange
things in there...
