Upgrading to RC2

Hi, I have just upgraded to RC2 from RC1, I followed the instructions in 
upgrading-samba4.txt. Everything went well until:
tar cf $HOME/backup.tar private etc var sysvol
I got:
tar: sysvol: Cannot stat: No such file or directory

I just cut & pasted the command and never thought about the 'sysvol' on 
the end, the full path to sysvol is /usr/local/samba/var/locks/sysvol. I 
was in the samba directory as per the instructions, so backing up the 
var directory backs up the sysvol dir. Removing sysvol from the tar 
command makes the command run without error.

After that, everything worked as expected and I am now running RC2.
