I just discovered, to my horror, that the examples don't link with the
libsmbclient library in source/bin; instead they dynamically link with
whatever is in /usr/local/samba/lib/  So much for a meaningful
test. :-(

It's possible that the work that has already been accomplished in making Samba
interoperate with Vista has fixed the problems.  I'll need to get back to an
environment with Vista access to test it again.

That kinda sucks.  It means that I wasted that entire day of testing.
Live and learn, I guess.
