Samba 4.0.6 in production

Hi guys,

One of the fileserver production systems hdd just died and I had to rebuild
the system since the old one will get deccomissioned. I installed and
deployed samba 4.0.6 in production to replace the old system. It's very
stable - it ran for a week with 100% uptime. However, I noticed 2 issues.

When I rename a Windows 7 (64 bit) workstation, it does not rename it under
the domain. I still see the old name in the dsa.msc computer hierarchy. If I
check the properties of the machine under the domain services, I do see the
new name. However the label is still the old machine name.

Second issue is that sometimes a user will alter somehow the file
permissions in a specific folder structure. It is very strange that only ONE
user has issues with that and I have to move files back and forth so I
restore permissions.

Any thoughts? Hopefully you get to fix these 2 in the upcomming releases.
Thanks for the great work!
