BTW, I should note that this patch is against the samba 3.5.6~dfsg-3 
from debian squeeze. It will not apply to master, as the relevant code 
has been somewhat refactored. I hope I'll be able to port it to the 
latest version and submit it for inclusion to master, but I'm not sure 
when I'll make the time.
