your reply seems empty but as I'm a bit curious I found this :
I already had such errors with Ubuntu Hardy and Samba on some circumstances.
Anyway, the *very* *very* good news behind this, is that French Cops
announced that they will migrate their 70.000 PCs to Ubuntu 8.04 :)
Then, they won't be able to burn compatible DVDs :
And their network will be crappy :]] LOL
Thanks Ubuntu, keep on the good bugs ;) LOL
