Thanks for that. I'll try and get your fixes into the main tree for
the next release. There aren't many Samba users using Postgres as a
passdb backend, hence it doesn't get as much attention as you'd like.
If you're willing to talk to the press I'm sure I could get some
journalists to talk to you and do a story on your setup. Linux Journal
in the US and LinuxUser and Developer in the UK would be interested.
I'm afraid I don't know what country code "ar" is, so you'll need to
tell me in order for me to try and find local journalists.
