[Samba] MMC crashes with rc6

Yes, after the mmc client works once, it continues to work - even after
removing acl:search=false. I tested as follows to see if it's related to
the actual workstation connecting to S4 or the MMC tool. It seems to be the
MMC tool.

Set acl:search=false
Start S4
Boot client & login (this is the first time it's seeing S4)
Remove acl:search=false + Restart S4
Open MMC = crash
Add acl:search=false + Restart S4
Open MMC = works
Remove acl:search=false + Restart S4
Open MMC = works
Reboot client
Open MMC = works

As I mentioned in my first email, if I use mmc with rc5, then rm -rf
/usr/local/samba and provision rc6 (from the same files that were used for
rc5) the client still works. It seems that after mmc successfully connects
once, it skips whatever it's failing on. Perhaps it's caching something?

I will test the patch shortly.
