Actually it wasn't an smbd bug, more an interaction between
the xcopy test when run in that configuration and the test
environment. That test insists on doing the xcopy as DOMAIN\Administrator,
whilst the underlying filesystem is mapping onto the user
doing the test. This means the xcopy open for WRITE_DAC
and other write access failed, as it didn't really have
the rights to do that. I fixed the test environment here,
not smbd.
