was passed into a function that took a string, in its NDR string form,
and it specifically checked for 0 bytes and raised an error.  We're
pushing the fix into autobuild now.

My "flakey test" system (see /home/tridge/ on sn-devel)
also noticed the problem, but in my backlog of email I didn't see the

Perhaps we should send flakey build notifications somewhere else a bit
more reliable than my inbox? The way it works is that it tries to
build master using the autobuild scripts on sn-devel every 2 hours. It
then keeps logs of any failures and sends an email. Perhaps we should
send that email to samba-cvs instead of my email address? That would
mean there would be a much better chance of someone looking into the

Cheers, Tridge
