ok. This is interesting.  In 3.0.20b, a standalone Samba box
included the SPNEGO/NTLMSSP security blob in the negprot
response.  In 3.0.21, we do not (which matches what a
standalone WinXP server does).

As a result, the Win2k client (joined to an AD domain but
using cached credentials in disconnected mode) will continue
with the SMBsesssetup&X request against 3.0.20b but will
refuse against 3.0.21 (and XP).

Jeremy, Andrew B., Any feelings on this?

cheers, jerry
