Thanks :)   That clarified things a /lot/ for me.

BTW: I've spent a week of spare time trying to find a Jeremy A
Google-Tech-Talk on CIFS/Samba, but all I can find so far is this
Google SoC "CIFS Workshop" podcast from October 2007 :

If anyone actually has a link for this talk I'd be grateful ... but I
know you all have better things to do here.
