Which exact version did you test? There have been significant changes in this
area between 3.0.14a and (the to be released) 3.0.20. If you did not test
against 3.0.20rc2, could you please try this? If you still find differences,
could you please provide two sniffs, one against a Windows 2003 server and one
against Samba 3.0.20rc2, and *exact* steps to reproduce the faulty behaviour?
