While the different min wins ttl is interesting, if it cause some issues
we can always just set it to 10 in s3, because I see no reason why to
save the record for hours longer than the client asked for.

What worries me is the server max protocol.  The SMB2 server in the
ntvfs file server is forced on in our testsuite, but is off for normal
users.  How bad would it be for it to be enabled for our users?

Thank you for any advice you can give on this,
