As I am unable to successfully build the latest samba4 code 
(specifically the quicktest - debian guest on xenserver host) is there a 
workaround (whilst the reported bug above is sorted) for the really 
annoying issue of permissions on GPOs? Every time I select a GPO I get 
the message about "The permissions for this GPO in the SYSVOL folder are 
inconsistent ......" and clicking 'Ok' doesn't correct the issue. I've 
been doing a lot of GPO work this last week or so and this error message 
is driving me nuts!
