It would be trivial to add a smbrun() call just after the following line
in server.c:

	  DEBUG(1,("too many connections - rejected\n"));

To see how, look at the "root preexec" code a few lines further down.

Then you could run a script that runs smbclient -M to send a winpopup
message to the users machine. Hmmm, I wonder if win95 accepts winpopups
while processing a login?
