No, "clear if first" belongs in /var/run; these are the databases that are
reinitialized every time samba is restarted and are not preserved across
invocations of smbd, which logically means they don't need to be preserved
across reboots either.

Steve Langasek                   Give me a lever long enough and a Free OS
Debian Developer                   to set it on, and I can move the world.
