TDB data not written to disk

I'd like to hear, what you think about this:

I saw with recent Samba versions that TDBs are not written to disk 
while Samba is running, propably a problem of mmap'ed TDBs. So there 
was the problem that ID mappings which were updated on Friday where 
lost after a power loss on Saturday. Volker also mentioned that a 
customer saw this problem with recent Samba versions (3.0.14), while 
with 3.0.7 this problems never came up. This happens with 2.4 and 2.6 
linux kernels.

Apart from this it would be nice to have the timestamp of the TDBs 
updated when they changed, rsync backups would simply be easier to 
do and changes be more obvious.
