Sigh, I accidentally lost Volker's followup to my mail so I'll answer
it blindly now.

I'm not personnally in position to adapt the patch to 3.2.0
(ERRSKILL). Doing it is probably quite trivial for you guys, assuming
the issue is still there.

However, I have to mention that a very quick attempt to reproduce the
issue did indeed fail:

1) stop the daemons
2) remove locking.tdb
3) start the daemons
-->locking.tdb is re-created even when no clients connected

So, the issue of smbstatus spitting a badmessage when launched on a
system where no clients ever connected does seem to be a non issue

I guess that some code elsewhere creates locking.tdb when daemons are

So, if that's confirmed, this patch becomes irrelevant and could be
dropped in Debian (yay!).
