The attached patch for SAMBA fixes this problem, preventing log
messages from being printed to stdout if the tar-file is written to
Anyone using Amanda to back up MS-Windows shares with SAMBA should
apply this patch in the SAMBA sources and rebuild it, otherwise the
backups will be useless! Then, force Amanda to run full backups, so
as to ensure that you have usable backups as soon as possible.
Thanks to Ronny Blomme for having investigated the problem and
suggesting a solution.
