Anton will be asleep, so I'll attempt to answer this one.

We have been told by the people upstairs who run the server that it isn't.
I have a recollection that it may be a forked version of the samba code,
but don't rely on my recollections.
Either way it is sitting on top of NSS, a Novell filesystem, which is
significantly different to "normal" Linux filesystem. I don't know that
this is the issue, but it is a difference which may affect things
regardless of the fileserver code.
